Ed Cray's fine; we email often about various projects.
Les Claypool, who was fondly referred to as Clay Cesspool when he was on the air, is still around, but retired. I invited him to come on the Sunday night folk show during my caretaker tenure there, but he didn't want to. Everyone's loss....I would have paid big money to hear him on the air again.
Skip Weschner, who was married to Lynn Taylor (who was the best-looking Rooftop Singer), passed away a few years ago. He was never the same after Lynn chose to end her life. I don't know what happened to all those hours and hours (gosh, must have been hundreds of hours) of radio interviews that Skip did during his long career in folk radio.
Mary Katherine <-----really ticked off at the decision to cancel John Davis and cut back the Larmans' time and move them. Dumbness.
