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 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
