Subject: RE: looking for les claypool
Hi, Mary Katherine, I still miss you on the radio.

I think not[therefore I am not?]. I asked about both, and he confirmed that Weshner had died in San Diego--which I knew--and he thought that Claypool also had passed on. As I wrote above, Don Barrett just has him listed as retired. Les Crane, whom you may recall, died earlier this month, and that is noted at Barrett's, so laradio.com is pretty current. I even left a message at KPFK, but have not received a call back.

As to Claypool hits online, I found only one for our Les, and that was a blurb about the protest broadcast, and I went 20 Google pages deep. Les, the bassest was born in 1962, in North Carolina, I think. I read some about him to see if there might be a relationship; I'm thinking none.

Good to hear from you, John
