  2. Thank you for playing this interview with Gary Snider, and David Cassidy. I have been a fan of David Cassidy’s since the 1970s, and he was a very beautiful person and had a wonderful soul.

    It was lovely hearing David singing the end of the show.

    Thank you Tony Perkins and Gary Stein for the program.

  3. Dear Tony & Gary, thank you all for dedicating this show to precious David Cassidy. I have been in love with him since 1970. I still can’t believe that he is gone. Tears are flowing as I type this. That song that you played that David recorded before he passed away, is really haunting. I hope that David’s keyboardist, Craig, is going to be able to get those songs together and on a DVD for everyone to be able to buy soon. I’ve noticed at the last several concerts that I’ve seen of David’s, that David seemed to be really close to his keyboardist. So it does not surprise me to find out during this interview that he was really close to Craig. I was happy to find out about that.

  4. What an insightful interview with Craig Snider. I think his fans have been wondering what was causing his pain. Craig said what I suspected. David Cassidy was a sensitive soul. He was tortured by the ugliness of today’s world and had a hard time dealing with it. Additionally, I don’t think he ever got over the pain of his father’s indifference at times, and his father’s jealously of David’s success and fame. David just couldn’t get past that. I wish he had. I wish David hadn’t thought so highly of his Dad. His Dad was no saint; but David Cassidy will be beloved. I loved his sound and his music. I don’t think I have ever heard a clinker put out by David. WE will suffer by his passing. RIP Dear David Cassidy.

  5. I’ve only just listened to this show. Thankyou so much for creating a work that honours David. It was lovely to hear Craig’s insight and very generous of him to share that with us so soon after he had lost his friend. David was a unique talent and a great loss to his frìends, family, and his fans. I do hope the EP can be released for it sounds like it cost him much to record it, and it would be a shame for the world not to hear it…..

  6. Amazing show, interview and tribute. Extraordinary. Thank you
    What a beautiful, beautiful man David was, inside and out. And that voice. So exquisite. So talented. Exceptional. I saw him in the 70’s. He was beyond beautiful.l.
