The Sad News ..........
Santa Cruz County and the whole world of Americana music is saddened by the death of KPIG (formerly KFAT) radio pioneer Laura Ellen Hopper. It's all over the papers and the outpouring of us who will miss her is tremendous. Just go to www.kpig.com or search her name and you'll see what all the fuss and grieving is about. I wasn't a personal friend of hers but did talk with her on occasions, the last being a nice chat at the KPIG songwriters Festival at Villa Montalvo last year while we rocked to The Subdudes ...... I was hoping for more conversations with her.
KPIG is the best damn radio station ever! Laura you'll be missed, my condolences to your family.
