GAYLORD! Diane, please accept a virtual hug, it's gotta be tough to have to do this show, we understand
  12:26pm Dean:

Imagine being situated at or near the UC Berkeley campus. Today, the campus is preparing for "demonstrations" of the most free and pure speech uttered since, I dunno, Jefferson, Paine, Patrick Henry, and El Duce. Imagine hearing Explosive Improvised Device and wanting to know more about the recording. So, you search for information about it online. Uhm, was that a big mistake? We'll see...

Only learned yesterday of his passing. The passing of John Ashbery put me in a shitty funk. The passing of Wm. Berger does not help one bit.

Yes, it IS the only way, just being in the moment and the moment is sad. That's one of the reasons I stopped doing my Year End Death show, was making me too sad.

Okay, I'm actually tearing up for really truly. Was wondering when it was gonna hit. Glad I'm here with Diane & Co. when it did.
Avatar 12:49pm SiHV:

Like others on this board, I'm really grateful to Wm turning me on to so much good music and being a weekly companion for going on 8 years. I take solace that there are others out there that dug his groove like I did, and that WFMU will continue to be the place we get together.

Thanks for this show Diane, and fare thee well Wm.

I'd seen Fulci's film a million times before FMU, but it very quickly became re-coded in my brain. Deep.

& not sure if it was mentioned already, but his end-of-year roundup of best films was the most solid gospel of its type available anywhere.

Wm. also released some of the best shit I had heard in awhile on his label Prison Tatt Records. That Malemort tape is the bomb! Always solid releases...

Dig the Long Distance Poison releases very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm coelacanth∅:

..and i'm sad for your loss Diane. it's a loss for all of us but obviously some more than others.
- i never met William personally. (though i've listened to his radio since he was the Hip Bone, and not specializing in metal)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Rory:

LDP LP Bog Nebula is a favorite of mine.
Avatar 1:05pm SiHV:

@Rory I'm happy to say that I have the first PT release, Grasshopper, and a few more besides. Amazing track.
  1:07pm Anthony Saunders (EID):

one of my biggest regrets is the EID 12" I finished circa 2011 for Wm./Prison Tatt never quite made it out to the public; we'd been in touch a couple weeks ago about finally getting it pressed... I'll make sure it comes out in 2018 even if just as a self-release, in his honor.
Avatar 1:08pm khd:

been listening live as much as possible since i heard the news and all the DJ memorial sets have been very moving, thanks Diane, et.al.

His final words were poignant if you listen to his last show. He didn't take his life for granted, even last week.

being critically ill, as he'd been, can do that. i think it changed the nature of his programming as well.

Hard to believe. Longtime fan of Wm.'s show. I didn't get to listen live or chat much, as it's on a 'school night' for me, but often listened to the archives.
He really made a unique sonic space with his show.

@The Countess, thank you, and THANK YOU! xo
Avatar 1:54pm Cecile:

Grant was very close to some very lovely people I know, and that is also difficult, although once again, it wasn't a shock, just a terrible surprise. Then I have minor medical issues and have to have surgery, and my boss told me to take down "everything related to that bearded lady" while they reconfigure my cube. And she doesn't want it back, even it though it was hidden before. Stupid stuff and real heavy stuff, and UGH.

Wm. Bergers show was the only one my wife would "allow" me to listen to that late for the first 30mins. We would be sent in to the abyss and sometimes not hear his voice. As much as he will be missed he has acheived the ultimate and will live on through his art and creation.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm BronwynB:

William's show was a comfort to me when I lived in Los Angeles. I hated Los Angeles, but one thing that was comforting was when I was studying or reading or thinking about how much I hated Los Angeles at 9pm, William would be on with his cathartically dark and heavy but still uplifting music. Then I moved back here and couldn't listen anymore because I had to get up early for work...but I'll always remember how he would always engage with me when I commented and ended up finding me on Facebook and we talked using that. I only met him in person once but I miss him anyway.

For the better part of a really bad year, the only way I could sleep was listening to Wm. Berger's My Castle of Quiet with headphones on. And for years, began my day listening to his archives. The zombie theme is forever soothingly burned in my brain. This is my favorite archived show: wfmu.org... (listened to hundreds of times) Thanks Wm. Rest in Peace.

Thank you for playing that chunk of songs from our live set. Ides was lucky enough to perform on MCoQ twice, and William was always beyond enthusiastic and genuine about everything we did as musicians (and the nj heavy music scene in general). I feel lucky that we could both have called ourselves fans of what the other did. He will be so sorely missed.
