Thread Name: Obit: Jed Marum - May 1952 - May 2018
Subject: RE: 2018 Obit: Jed Marum
The first time I heard Jed was on Max's old "Mudcat Radio" show. I thought he was really good, and wondered why I'd never hear of him. Apparently, the self-recorded "Streets of Fall River" had just come out. (I think it was 2000, but I'm not sure.)

Jed sent me the CD. Jed also sent me all of his CDs as they came out, and a few demos before they came out. He loved music, and he was generous. I believe it was Rick Fielding who encouraged him to commit to a music career. I don't think Jed ever regretted doing so.

No question he loved music. No question he loved his wife and whole family. He was just a really good guy, and everyone who had met him, wanted to see him again.
