Wheee! Why didn't anyone tell me that there was a new season of Top Chef Canada? I guess the good part is that since they're seven weeks in, we get all the preliminaries and big gang cooking out of the way, and should be almost at Restaurant Wars by the time I catch up.

Just finished the first show, and really SHOULD just take the rest to work later, since I have to wake early today to witness my daughter's final honors as what her school designates as a Rising Star (monthly award, one or two students from each class).

Pete Fornatale, longtime DJ in the New York airwaves, died this morning at approximately 11:30 AM.

Pete's long-running show, "Mixed Bag", was one of the all-time best things ever on the radio. He introduced or featured more artists to whom I still listen than perhaps any other single influence on the air. From WNEW-FM to WFUV-FM, he was one of the great constants in life, and losing him is the unfortunate answer to the question "what could be even sadder than losing Dick Clark and Levon Helm?"

I think I need to go listen to the collected Easter shows that he did with Steve Goodman ("it's a tradition, right?").

Rest in peace, man. You earned it, and then some.
