Tonight I’m joined by The Outside World’s Daniel Flessas and Dr. Zomb of Dr. Zomb’s Stereo Obscura, as we attempted to pay tribute to those who passed on in 2009.
This was on KBOO, following the jack-knifed semi on the radio freeway that was the 3rd annual Portland Music Awards.
Did anyone leave their radio on to catch us afterwards? Who knows? We had few calls, which was unusual.
The Deathstravaganza went well, though. We barely got to everyone, but Daniel, acting as MC, did a pretty good job of at least mentioning as many departed folks as possible within the two hour show.
In Two Thousand and Nine we lost Michael Jackson, Lux Interior (of The Cramps), Ron Asheton (Stooges), Patrick McGoohan, David Carradine, Walter Cronkite, Paul Harvey, Oral Roberts, Marilyn Chambers, J.G. Ballard, Elizabeth Clare Profit, Dom DeLuis, Les Paul, Jim Carroll and so many, many more….
