I shall raise another glass in his honour.

if anyone's in touch with spamoni's family, please convey that he will be missed here.
  6:21am David:

Good morning everyone,my name is David and Spamoni aka Dean is my father. I had to log on as I knew how much this meant to him. He is still with us but sadly these are his last few days and he can't really talk or comprehend things. But I just wanted to say how thankful I am for all of you for providing my dad happiness on the weekends he looked forward so much to these chats.
Avatar 6:21am Ignatatus666:

Hoping he’s listening
He is definitely in hospice care
He’s not been well enough to communicate much
Avatar 6:23am testingwithfire:

hi David, thank you for keeping us updated, and my thoughts are with you and your family.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23am Gavin in Bristol:

Morning all. Beautiful music for this soggy morning here in Bournemouth.
Avatar 6:24am Ignatatus666:

David Dean is family here. It breaks our hearts to see him end like this. He’s been to hell already. PMA to you and your family.
If at all possible can you tell us his favorite band and song?
  6:25am John from Florham park:

@David thank you very much your father is going to be missed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25am Gavin in Bristol:

@David Sorry to hear about your Dad, Spamoni. I didn't know him but it was always nice to read his comments and see his perpetual presence here. I'm sure Jeff is playing this set just for him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26am Nulsh:

David, thanks for the update. Your dad is a gent. We share a love of sharing a beer with our sons. Please tell him Nulsh said hello. Thanks.
  6:26am John from Florham park:

@Iggy morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28am dale:

david. peace to his soul and your family.

lost my nephew to cancer at only 32 six months ago - someday they will stop building aircraft carriers and cure cancer. sadly that isn't today.
  6:28am David:

If anyone has anything to pass along or wants to reach out feel free to email me at francheezy19@yahoo.com i don't know if I'll be on next weekend but again thank you all so much for the time you spent with him. He loved music so much so it's hard to pick a favorite but I'd say the doors Crosby stills and Nash and Bob Dylan are all his favorite bands. His favorite song (must have been for how many times I have heard) it is Marrakesh Express.
  6:37am John from Florham park:

@David thank you fir the contact information

Hopefully he’s laying down listening
Tell him I’ll see him in Valhalla
He’s one of the few listeners that I interact with on the regular.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43am Jeffrey Davison:

welcome John from Florham Park, LiXiviated Life, Ignatatus666, Gavin in Briston and a special welcome to David...thank you David for checking in and giving us the latest on your dad. Dean has been a welcome part of the WFMU community, and I'm always amazed at the connections that are made through this radio station. We do gather emotional connections to one another, though in many cases we scarcely know one another except through our few weekly comments. Nonetheless, Dean's struggle has meant something to us all. It sure seemed from the beginning that he had no shortage of courage in dealing with his illness. My fondest good wishes and love to Dean, and thanks to the wonderful listeners of FMU for just being there.

  Swag For Life Member 7:04am jeremyo:

Hello all, now at a screen after listening in during a dog-walk. So sorry to hear the news from David about Spamoni. I'm not often a commenter - I often get this on catch-up - but usually read the comments and Dean's character and courage have come over so strongly this last however long. Truly a lesson to all of us, but perhaps more importantly, simply a pleasure to encounter. I wish him every ounce of pleasure he can squeeze from the time he has, my heart's with him and you, David, and all his family. And to all of you fellow listeners, a lovely ad hoc community.
  7:08am John from Florham park:

@Jeremyi I think you learn pretty quickly on this list who is a dick and who is not,

Thank you David for the update.I always enjoyed hearing from your father as we shared some time on this shrunken planet. Good morning Jeffrey and fellow planeteers.
Avatar 7:20am John from NP:

@David thanks for the update regarding your dad. We chatted more on Sunday mornings during Carol's show and a few times via email. Stay strong and a whole bunch of internet friends have you in our thoughts.
  7:22am Buddha of Suburbia:

  Swag For Life Member 7:24am jeremyo:

@John from Florham Park :-D yeah, fortunately they are pretty scarce here!

Jeffrey, as ever, lovely sets. I always enjoy the subtle theming you tend to give them, it makes for a nice shape to the show. No doubt this set is well organised already but I'm thinking a little Myriam Gendron would fit in well. It's about time she gave us something new...
Avatar 7:24am TDK60:

Sadly, my friend I mentioned last week, died later last Saturday, at 60. A great punk singer, graphic artist and horror genre fan. Bob Cotter. / And another good friend is in hospice in the Bronx in his last days.

Just jumping in here to thank you, Jeffrey, WFMU folx one and all, for keeping us updated and connected re: Spamoni. This is a very special online community, and such caring communications are what keep me coming back.
David, if you or other family members see this, know that your father, Dean, has a lot of folx who have enjoyed engaging in chats about music and freeform thoughts with him. Count me as one. I am very sad to hear we wont see his presence here again. Peace.
