The Secret Talkradio Giant?

One less reason to write a book... no chance of being interviewed by David Brudnoy now.

In a way I guess I have been prepared for this since the time he almost died in the mid-90's, but I still can't help feeling sad about it. I have never heard another host that I think brought so wide a range of gifts to the microphone. I wish he had been syndicated so that more folks could have experienced him (not that WBZ doesn't have a great nighttime bounce... I used to listen regularly when I lived in Maryland, for instance). When I see the kinds of folks who are syndicated, and are considered talkradio giants, it makes me kind of embarrassed for us as talkradio listeners. I guess his show wasn't for everyone... I should be glad it was there at all for those of us who did like it. I know of a number of other talkradio hosts that listened to bruds... I just wish they could do what he did, too.

One more reason to pull for an afterlife... thinking about some of the great interviews bruds will get to do now. ;-)

I LOVE Georgia on my Mind. Best jazz song ever.

My normal song rotation gets kind of crazy since I keep adding things to tweak it out when I notice I am getting bored with it. Lately I have just been bored in general, so that hasn't helped. Anyway, just the other day I decided to switch to the "Don't Kill My Coworkers" playlist that I'd put together last year when I was working on a huge and very detailed long-term project. It isn't necessarily mellow songs or anything, just stuff that seems to put me in a more reflective state. It has been a good choice and, yeah, Georgia on my Mind is great.
