Man this is a tough one… on Friday we learned that a great friend of the show…Comedian Ralphie May died of a heart attack in Las Vegas.  He was only 45.  He had apparently been battling pneumonia, and possibly bronchitis.  Ralphie was still doing his show in Vegas despite being ill.

We got to know many years ago when he came to town for a comedy show, and quickly became a bud to all of us.  We would spend many mornings laughing on air…and all spend time off the air when in town grabbing food and even more laughs.  Man, he will be missed.  Truly one of the good guys.

One of my favorite memories was when we used to do the Holiday hangover Ball concerts…he was in town one of those times, and our station cover band, The New Originals, was playing…so he joined us on stage for a cover of the Beastie Boys “Fight For Your Right”.  It was surreal having Ralphie jamming out with us on stage…and my face hurt by the end of the night from laughing as much as I did backstage.

I was able to find a couple past interviews with Ralphie on our show.  You can listen to one of them HERE

This might be one of my favorite appearances of Ralphie’s...

 

RIP brother…you will be missed!
