This show is dedicated to longtime WFMU DJ William Berger whose sudden death earlier this week shocked the WFMU community - all of whom who had great music related memories of the DJ (and musician with back catalog) and his long running WFMU radio show. Past few days I’ve listening to the “Castle of Quiet” archives that begin at Nov. 23, 2001. Those shows personified the eclecticism of WFMU and its unique breed of DJs - DJs like Berger whose sets’ many genres included West Coast rap hip-hop. In the very first archived show the DJ, who had lived in the Bay, included in his musically diverse mix the Luniz “I Got 5 On It.” With approx 400 WFMU archived shows - typically three hours - that’s a total of approx 1200 hours of archives to listen back to. For me that’s good because I missed most of his shows so now I can catch up. The passing of William Berger is reminder that you have to embrace what you love like he loved music. No time to waste. Rest in peace William Berger and thanks for the archives. - This show is coming from Denver Colorado at Meadowlark Kitchen in heart of this week's Colorado CRUSH Festival - annual aerosol art fest that takes over back alley walls as canvases. Shout out to Casey Karns and Kalyn Heffernan from Wheelchair Sports Camp and everyone in the appropriately named Mile High City

I always have the most difficult time getting on and off of the Double Dutch bus. I always trip.

CRUSH festival in Denver looks quite intriguing

This great, Billy Jam. Much love and admiration for Wm. Sad that he's left us so early.

Yo Bill, sorry to hear about the passing of William Berger
Avatar 7:18pm Cheri Pi:

It's rare to find anyone like Wm Berger,, someone who whoeheartedly supports & encourages artists and dj's to be themselves, take their risks, believe and trust in their artform no questions asked

I find that just repeating "Rise, William, rise!" to myself brings a smile to my face, in the midst of an overwhelming sadness, tied to our loss of Wm. Berger.

thank YOU for tuning in today + thoughts on Wm Berger - Bronwyn B who is doing the board-op/engineering today is another DJ impacted by Wm. Berger whose paths crossed in her time her at WFMU. I’m thankful for the WFMU archives = as noted by Adam in Vancouver “Rise William Rise”

  7:28pm Adam from Vancouver:

Your words on the subject are certainly beautiful, and very, very representative of his beauty.
Avatar 7:30pm Billy Jam:

Note half hour into show with 12 songs already played - that's a lot cos here at PTNOTR it's all killer no filler biaaaatch
Avatar 7:30pm northguineahills:

Jumping work, thanks Billy! William would put me to sleep many a nights. Feels like I just listened to him last week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm BronwynB:

i didn't know wm real well but he made me feel welcome as a new dj and was always so kind. i miss his presence in the fmu family
  7:32pm Adam from Vancouver:

Thank you, Billy and Bronwyn, as well! There is no shortage of pain out here at his passing, but I cannot even imagine how much it likely hurts for those who knew him in the physical realm. As I said somewhere within the past few days, Wm. always struck me as someone that I would have loved to have given quite a hug to.

I've been enjoying reading the comment section and hearing him talk ... like many DJ's it makes me wish I knew him better.
