Pink Floyd & Richard Wright Marathon Today!

I was very sad to read of Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard Wright's death on Monday at the age of 65, from cancer.

While he never got as much attention as Roger Waters, David Gilmore or even Syd Barrett, like the "quiet Beatle" George Harrison, Wright's immense talent was very much a core element of Pink Floyd's sound. Additionally, his vocals are very much characteristic of the Pink Floyd sound and can be heard on such memorable numbers as "Time," "Comfortably Numb," and "Astronomy Dominae."

To mark his passing, NeverEndingWonder Radio will present a six hour Pink Floyd & Richard Wright Marathon today, Tuesday, September 16, from 12 noon to 6 PM Pacific time. I'll also include some Polka Floyd songs!
