The process of crafting (and yes, it is a fine craft) the weekly RadiObituary segment is a malapert endeavor. Seeking those recently deceased deemed worthy of recognition punctuated with scurrile comedic content takes a puissance that is one part passion and one part dharma with a sprinkle of piquancy. A cursory glance at those who may have passed away in a week’s time oft appears on the surface to be uninteresting or just a tough tribute. With a moment’s thought, who cares about the dude who popularized yogurt becomes a 15 minute exaltation of Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Is that so wrong?
