Weezie is afraid of the bedsheets. No idea why, but she doesn't like me moving them around, flipping them back, pulling them off the bed etc.

Happy/sad:

A few neighbors were going to chip in and pay a couple of through hikers (AT) to do some much needed yard work for me (getting rid of a small patch of poison ivy for one) but they are getting back on the trail in the morning.

So sweet. So disappointed.

M Dung passed away today. 



He was a giant influence on my musical tastes after I moved to the Bay Area in the mid 80s. 

Think Bobcat Goldwaith meets Wolfman Jack. He'd been extremely ill for the past few years and had to leave his job as a lab tech. But he embodied the spirit of what a real radio DJ should be: he knew his history, had an open mind, kept the energy high, and seemed like a really nice guy.

He was the Grand Louie at the first Louie Louie parade to battle leukemia. Here's more about that. 

I've got a few dozen of his podcasts stored up, and I'll broadcast them for a while. You can tune in.

The audio's been taken down but here's a list of the podcasts he was doing for a while. I think he got shown the door at KFOG many years ago, as they tried to be more normal. He was allowed to do one final show on their anniversary and he laced it heavily with "these are good guys here; give them a chance." Even though they wouldn't let him back in.

I'm sure there's a better clip with music and all but this aircheck is nuts on its own...

Meeting a very dear, old friend's significant other for the first time ... and not particularly caring for him.

He just didn't seem very nice, to her or to me. He was however good with Weezie.

Guess it's lucky that they live in Michigan.

The fact that Grimm is coming to an end Friday.

 

I really liked that show, and loved that it was filmed in my city.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised to get an email from the wife, acknowledging my surgery and offering to provide some help/support. I replied and told her I would accept any and all help.

I do think that she and I can manage to avoid any contentious topics. I'm grateful.
