Default Goodbye to Dave Mac

Sirius DJ Dave Mac has left this world. He passed away on Saturday. Very sad news. Incredulous news.

In addition to all he did at Sirius, Dave also worked at a public radio station in New Jersey and did a great show called Box of Blues.

Below is what was written about Dave by his brother, and posted on that station's website. You can post your thoughts about him there as well. You might like reading all the nice things people are saying about him there.



One of the most respected and beloved members of the Brookdale Public Radio crew passed away over the weekend. We have set up this page for our listeners to leave comments remembering our friend, Dave Mac. Below is the obituary written by Dave’s brother Duncan:

He was born in New York City and graduated the University of Indiana at Bloomington. He was a radio personality on Sirius Satellite Radio where he was known as Dave Mac. Dave hosted shows on The Spectrum, Sirius Blues and Sirius Disorder channels. There will be a tribute to Dave on the Sirius website and also on air starting on January 10. For many years, Dave also hosted Brookdale Community College’s 90.5 FM “Box of Blues”. Until recently, he was musical director for “Jody Joseph and the Average Joes” band.

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.

Visiting 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, 180 Ridge Road, Fair Haven, NJ. Burial services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations in David’s memory may be directed to the American Cancer Society or Radio Station WBJB, Brookdale Community College.

Please feel free to leave your comments of Dave. He will be missed.
