Just heard a report on X-Ray’s passing on WNYC. Surreal and respectful. R.I.P.

@JakeGould, on which show? Plenty of WFMU "moles" working at WNYC
  12:25pm Listener Steve:

Playing a dangerous game today, aren't we?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Jake give Glen Jones' program from Sunday a listen. Heart wrenching. A-Ray passed while Glen was on tghe air.
Avatar 12:26pm JakeGould:

@Phillippe: Knowing Ken, he will invade the Polka show with lots of incompressible German and Soviet tunes. God bless him!
  12:26pm frenchee:

insane is right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Blacktooth:

A very fitting tribute. Can't say I believe 100% in "miracles," but I'd like to think that X-Ray is cackling some place at that severely botched live edit. Great stuff....
Avatar 12:27pm JakeGould:

It was a just a top of the hour news report at noon. ‘Plenty of WFMU "moles" working at WNYC’ That’s really nasty.

Anyway, @Phillippe I heard it. Truly sad and surreal and almost perfectly appropriate.
Avatar 12:28pm JakeGould:

Clarification to ‘?’ seriously, stop calling people “moles” even if you are jokingly saying it. WNYC and WFMU actually have a healthy relationship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Phillippe Bastille:

Yeah. I've been listening to radio most of my 60+ years and I don't believe I've ever been moved that much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Kat in Chicago:

  12:30pm frenchee:

@JakeGould, why nasty? Sorry I didn't sign in. Freeform djs gotta eat, you know. IT'S A JOKE. I wish I'd heard it but I was listening to Kurt.
  12:30pm Rory:

I befriended a stoner kid in 8th grade who listened to ICP all the time. Brings back memories! I’ll even admit they had some good songs.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Mr. Pumpy:

Wilson...right there with ya. He encompassed so much, so relatable on many levels, and gone. Even though we were deeply divided on many things, it never made a difference with X-ray. A scholar, ambassador, and douchebag clown for all us jerkoffs. Words fail me.

I am stuck on X-Ray so maybe everything is filtered through that. But this show is so perfect right now. He existed in so many modes. Radio enables that kind of shape shifting. Except that he was mostly being fully himself at all costs. So to those of us who are in our furrows it looks like shape shifting. Anyway. Great show.
