Re: Robert J Obsequies

Luckily for Joe and others the All Things Considered obit for Robert J lives
on the net


( its a real audio file)

I like most listened to him on and off, and I did wake up to his bird calls
many times.

It seems strange but the show that stands out in my mind was in December of
1980. If was the morning after John Lennon had been gunned down and finally
after being up all night and hearing Lennon music over and over I needed an
escape and went to WGBH.

I should have known better......... :)     Robert broke format that morning.

And to me that was the most memorable Lennon tribute of them all.
