From the WBCQ website:


"We have received word that Jay Smilkstein, our longtime friend and WBCQ fan, passed away at his home on Monday, March 12, 2012.

If you would like to know more about where to send your expressions of sympathy, please contact me via e-mail at radio@zappahead.net.

Larry Will, WBCQ"



Rest in peace, Jay.

I find this vaguely disturbing. Never met the man, but the legend is huge in my mind. I am left with many questions, not the least of which are:
Where's Fansome with his obits when you need him?
What's going to happen to all of Jay's sweet equipment and rare parts?
More sauce, less taco!

Sorry, I didn't think it necessary to post anything here.

I never met the guy, but I certainly read enough about him, and heard the various recordings on the air. I know that he had been in the hospital a few years back with heart trouble, but I hadn't heard anything recently.

He seemed a troubled soul, and I hope things are better for him on the other side.
