David Day

12549011_10208789261677341_4948972041433626881_nI’m very sad to report the passing this weekend of our friend David Day.

It is no exaggeration to say that David did as much for the Bruuuce.com community as anybody. He was a frequent poster to our message board (actually, the most frequent, by some margin!) and arranged several get-togethers, including at the Biltmore this summer.

I’ve been asked to record a podcast remembering David, which is a great idea, although not perfect in its execution. You can listen to it or download it above, or find the Bruuuce.com podcast on iTunes – about twenty minutes remembering our friend. It’s a short notice deal, so I apologise for it being a little scattered in places. It closes with David’s favourite song, Tango King, from Madison, WI on May 12 1996.

I mentioned that the next tribute record will be in David’s memory. We’re releasing it this August, and there’s still time to record and contribute a track. If you’d like to be involved, please contact Si.

David made it easy to look after our great community. He did most of it for us. We’ll miss him a lot.
