the rest is noise

as you may know, the umfm radio fam­i­ly lost some pret­ty spe­cial to us this week. long­time radio pre­sen­ter gail stock­burn, bet­ter know to some of you as Gail Com­fort passed away on Mon­day after a lengthy bat­tle with can­cer. I am not going to lie, I am hav­ing a hard time deal­ing with this as so many are and know that some­time in the near future I will put togeth­er a prop­er trib­ute to Gail filled with just a few of the many songs and artists that she shared with me. But for tonight, I felt that the best way to pay trib­ute was to share one of her pro­grams to demon­strate what she brought to radio and what made her so spe­cial to all of us at the sta­tion. So here, with­out inter­rup­tion is Gail speak­ing about a group of musi­cians that she loved — Black­ie & The Rodeo Kings.

Rest in peace Gail, you will for­ev­er be missed and will nev­er be forgotten.
