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!

The Summer Mix has retired for another year and we're back to our regularly irregular programming for 30 days, before we start the 2008 Annual Halloween Extravaganza. Lots of new music in play- specifically all those items added a couple of posts ago. Tune in for lots of great music!
I'm hard at work getting the Halloween offerings ready for this year, and boy is it going to be AMAZING! I have been working the last couple of months on some special projects an they're really coming together. I'm really excited, and looking forward to doubling our listener numbers from last year.
BTW- are you on Facebook? Come add us as a friend!

Or Welcome to Weirdsville
I just added a really nice song to Weirdsville that a fellow down in Brazil wrote and asked if I would play. I'll admit that most of the original Halloween songs people send me just aren't that good- but this one, by Marson Ramos is really good.
And hey- leave some comments!
