Default Sirius Tribute to Dave Mac All This Week, note on

As we mentioned <a href=>Monday</a>, Sirius DJ Dave 'Mac' McNamara passed away over the weekend due to cancer. <a href=>Pat St. John</a> has announced <a href=>on his website</a> that there will be a tribute to Dave Mac on Sirius this week. Listen to the Dave Mac Tribute Hour at the following times starting today:

The Spectrum - Channel 18
Wednesday, January 10th - 3pm (Eastern)
Thursday January 11th - 9am (Eastern)
Friday January 12th - Noon (Eastern)

Sirius Disorder - Channel 24
Wednesday, January 10th - 9pm (Eastern)
Thursday January 11th - 5pm (Eastern)
Friday January 12th - 2pm (Eastern)

Many of you have been wondering when would mention Dave's passing, and they have on all three channels he DJed on: <a href=>The Spectrum</a>, <a href=>Sirius Disorder</a>, and <a href=</a>Sirius Blues</a>.

UPDATE 11:40am ET: Each of the channel pages above on include the following tribute:
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.

jimboxlax is on a distinguished road

The Tribute Hour wasnt really an hour -- I set my Stiletto to tape it for an hour, and when the hour ended and it went off, there was still no sign of it ending.... I'll take another swipe at recording it tomorrow...

The first hour was pretty good tho -- some nice tributes, some great interview moments, and some appropriate music... They did a great job
Richard and the Young Lions? Ducky Boys? Fordham Baldies? If this garage band or bronx gangs of the 50's and 60's mean anything to you, check out to find out more about them!
