The UMFM staff and vol­un­teer team are dev­as­tat­ed to learn of the loss of one of our own. Ear­li­er this week, Kipp Kocay passed away unex­pect­ed­ly. Kocay first joined UMFM as part of the band of broth­ers behind Music From The Moon and his spo­ken-word seg­ments as part of that show were a week­ly joy.

A tal­ent­ed musi­cian who record­ed his first UMFM Live Ses­sion near­ly a decade ago, Kocay released five albums (includ­ing 2014’s Heart Like Mine and 2018’s April and Oth­er Months), all of which demon­strat­ed his sub­tle song­writ­ing skills and wry­ly humor­ous take on the world.

For the past year Kocay had been host­ing Kipp Inter­views His Friends, a series of social­ly-dis­tanced con­ver­sa­tions that fea­tured the wide cir­cle of peo­ple that Kipp had drawn into his orbit. The word Racon­teur did­n’t do Kipp jus­tice.

This sta­tion, the peo­ple who knew him, and this city will not be the same with­out him.

Rest easy Kipp.
