Wow, this is sad news indeed. I've noticed that SIRIUS has yet to update their website....

The Spectrum has a special tribute for him with a great but sad song. I'll miss him.

The Spectrum did a REALLY nice job for a tribute to him today. I was really glad they did that. I didn't get to catch all of it, but 45 minutes at least.

Dave will be greatly missed, I truly enjoyed listening to him on Sirius Blues... I am glad I had the opportunity to hear him...

I had a couple of email correspondences with him. Nice guy, and one of the few DJs that would actually reply back. Disorder 24 is where I really knew him from.


They've finally acknowledged his death on the Disorder and Spectrum pages:

DAVE MAC 1963 – 2007

Long time SIRIUS host Dave McNamara (“Dave Mac”) passed away Saturday morning, succumbing to cancer. He was 43 years old.

For the better part of his life, Dave was a musician...playing in and producing a number of bands along the same New Jersey shore that gave rise to Bruce Springsteen. Dave Mac was also a lifelong fan and connoisseur of music of all varieties. A great host here at SIRIUS, and before SIRIUS, at various radio stations across the country.

Hopefully you were able to hear him on the Spectrum, SIRIUS Disorder, or SIRIUS Blues. He made SIRIUS a better place – and if you knew him, you know that his contributions were far greater than merely his on-air work. Dave Mac could evoke laughter, tears, and significant thought...all within the course of one radio show. Dave Mac was a great communicator...and also, perhaps above all else, a great interviewer.

If you were lucky enough to hear Dave's conversations with some of the biggest stars in the history of rock music, then you were the beneficiary of some of the most frank and forthright discussions you could ever hope to eavesdrop on. From The Rolling Stones to John Mayer, Neil Young to Coldplay, The Who, B.B. King, Bob Seger, Pete Yorn, Keb Mo, Beth Orton, and so many others, Dave’s engaging nature brought out the absolute best in those he spoke with.

He is survived by his parents, Leon A. and Patricia D. McNamara, his fiancée Rita C. Truex and his brothers, Duncan McNamara of San Carlos, CA, and Malcolm McNamara. Viewing hours will be Thursday, January 11, from 6 to 8 pm, at the John E. Day funeral home, 85 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank, NJ. A memorial mass will be held on Friday, January 12, at 10:30 am at the Church of the Nativity, Fair Haven, NJ. Burial services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dave’s memory may be directed to the American Cancer Society.

Our tribute to Dave will air Thursday January 11 at 9 am ET and Friday at noon ET. The tribute will also air on SIRIUS Disorder.

Dave Mac will be missed. I listened yesterday for 4 hours to the Spectrum during their special show for Dave. GREAT stuff and interviews.

The best part about Sirius is of course their programming, but also their top notch DJ's. My hat comes off to the Sirius' DJ family.. You all make my listening experience enjoyable and worth the 12.95 a month... Sorry that your fellow Top Dog has fallen, but not forgotten...

Rock on.

thank you for letting us all know. I've been wondering where he has been, I was used to hearing his voice.

Learning about his departure really struck me hard..

Word, I was saddened to hear the news. And so young. As evil as cancer is, fortunately it does not triumph the awesome power of God.

Rest in Jesus Christ Dave Mac

wow.. I'm really bumming right now..

I listen to Sirius Blue all the time, and Dave has been the morning guy for years. What a great attitude, entertainer, etc. I always looked forward to Dave making some kind of comment about getting more coffee and getting ready for the day. His knowledge of the Blues was great and he had such a great sense of humor.

I know JB was filling in for him for awhile in Dec (never heard that he was sick), and when I heard JB again this week, I was like "where the hell is Dave?". So I logged onto sirius website and found out.

geez, 43. I'm 45. just isn't right....

rip Dave.
