We are very sad to report that Peter Bergman, a founding member of the Firesign Theatre and the driving force behind Radio Free Oz in all its incarnations, passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, March 9, 2012 due to complications from leukemia.
We will have more details as they become available.
"Take heart, dear friends.
We are passing through the darkening of the light.
We're gonna make it and we're going to make it together.
Don't get ground down by cynicism.
Don't let depression darken the glass through which you look.
This is a garden we live in.
A garden seeded with unconditional love.
And the tears of the oppressed,
and the tears of the frustrated,
and the tears of the good will spring those seeds.
The flag has been waved.
It says occupy.
Occupy Wall Street.
Occupy the banks.
Occupy the nursing homes.
Occupy the big law offices.
Occupy the lobbyists.
Because that's were it all comes together.
I pledge to you, from this moment on, whatever it means, I'm going to occupy myself.
I love you.
See ya tomorrow."
- Peter Bergman from his final Radio Free Oz Podcast.
