Peter Bergman of (The Firesign Theatre) 1939 - 2012
I just this moment learned that Peter Bergman of The Firesign Theatre has passed away from complications of Leukemia.
I am heartbroken!
I had the pleasure of meeting Peter last December when he and the other Fireheads were here and we talked about radio what can be done on it in terms of art.
It was one of those rare times where you meet someone who you grew up idolizing and they end being so cool and genuine. Peter's love of community radio and KBOO was apparent that night. Such a genius! Such a nice man.
Peter kindly offered to let KBOO run the classic series of 1970s radio programs in their entirety.
Rest in peace, Peter!
