Last week was the TENTH anniversary of Freda's death, if you
can fucking believe that. Will always remember this day,
listening and grieving, and also knowing it would mean a
premature end to the show.
I knew the tape was one day going to come up. I have been listening daily for 2 yrs now. Still a 4hr Club Member, I knew about Freda passing thru this site. This was my first time listening to this broadcast. I have yet to listen to 911, I skipped over it. Waking up this am, grabbing my coffee, and pulling up today's show, was a surprise. Haven't done much since. The hardest times in my life were eased by Don and Mike, they were then, and through this site, they still help me every day.
Not sure if one of you, Don or Mike run this site, but you guys saved my life.. thanks
Still a 4hr club member as well, this episode came up on my rotation last week. It just dawned on me the other day was 11 years. Very hard to listen to. However it is pretty amazing to listen to Don in the following shows as he simply does his job like a pro. Many people say the show took a turn after the "FCC / Janet boob" incident and after Fiedas passing but I enjoyed the all the way to the end. Thanks Mcfadone.
Long time listener, D & M, like most, got me through nightmare commutes and some tough times. Miss the 2 guys but great to have this site to reflect back when I can. Like everyone the passing of Freda show is the hardest to listen too. Freda rest in peace.
I don't know what made me think of the Don and Mike show
this evening, but I did. I was hoping there would be an
archive of the show somewhere. I listened to them when I
was a senior in high school in 1985, then all through my
college days, and then on into my career where I was lucky
enough to have a radio tuned when I could while doing my
preflight, flight planning, etc. As an international pilot,
my departures were after the show ended every day. When I
was away, my spouse would crudely record the episodes while
I was gone. This event shook me to the core, and I admit to
crying for about an hour or so as I imagined the pain,
grief, and tragedy Don, his son, and the radio family by
necessity had to work through. I did so enjoy the banter
when Freda called the show. Those of us who followed the
show for many of the 20 years considered them family
members who just didn't know us, but we knew and loved
them. I hope this website remains for a long time.
