Default Radio Vet Dave Mac Dies

This is sad news, I enjoyed heaing Dave on Sirius

Dave Mac, who hosted shows on Sirius Satellite Radio's The Spectrum, Sirius Blues and Sirius Disorder channels, died Friday evening, Jan. 5, from brain cancer. He was 43.

David O. McNamara was born in New York City and graduated from the University of Indiana at Bloomington. He started his radio career at WTTS/Indianapolis and later worked as an editor at the Hard Report. More recently he was at Sirius, as well as hosting a blues show on noncomm WBJB/Monmouth-Ocean, N.J.

Sirius rock programmer Gary Schoenwetter says, "Dave was one of the reasons I got into radio. As music director at WTTS, he took me in and turned me from a snotty college kid into a radio professional. I was blessed to reconnect with Dave at Sirius nearly 16 years later. Dave's passing leaves a void on the air and in the hearts of all who knew him."

McNamara is survived by his parents, Leon A. and Patricia D. McNamara; his fiancée, Rita C. Truex; and his brothers, Duncan and Malcolm McNamara.

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