I'm saying all this because as Talkupy prepares to go back on the air for the first time in two years, I want to tell you how much I appreciate the people who have taken the time to grant me wonderful interviews and make the show what it is.
I also want to say a sorrowful farewell to my friend John Gracy, who I met on the air as he walked us around the Stop The Kaboom Festival in July 2012. I'd never have met John, or become a real-life friend of his without Talkupy. He did amazing light shows for musicians and music festivals up and downt he East Coast. His life and his art mattered. I am so glad that Laura Steepleton introduced us and I will miss him forever.
