The John Batchelor Show for April 6th

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 6, 2008

It’s Sunday night, and that means it’s time for John Batchelor!

If you can’t listen to him over the air, you can listen to him from 7pm to 10pm Eastern Devil Time on WABC.

The main WABC Stream is not working this week, try this one.
Another backup is here.

Then, he switches over to KFI for the 10pm to 1am Eastern Devil Time slot.

His blog.

The Patriarch of the 2nd Amendment Has Passed

Charlton Heston (1923-2008)

The Heston family issued the following statement:

“To his loving friends, colleagues and fans, we appreciate your heartfelt prayers and support. Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life. He was known for his chiseled jaw, broad shoulders and resonating voice, and, of course, for the roles he played. Indeed, he committed himself to every role with passion, and pursued every cause with unmatched enthusiasm and integrity.

We knew him as an adoring husband, a kind and devoted father, and a gentle grandfather, with an infectious sense of humor. He served these far greater roles with tremendous faith, courage and dignity. He loved deeply, and he was deeply loved.

No one could ask for a fuller life than his. No man could have given more to his family, to his profession, and to his country. In his own words, “I have lived such a wonderful life! I’ve lived enough for two people.”

A private memorial service will be held. The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Motion Picture and Television Fund:

22212 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 300
Woodland Hills, CA 91364

After 18 months of battling his personal dinosaur, Paxten Andrew Mitchell passed at 7:28AM. I cannot find the words to express my feelings…. He fought throughout the night and morning. We love him so much and he will be sorely missed.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of Paxten. You are in my prayers.
All I can say to the family of Paxten is that Paxten had an impact on the rest of us in the short time the LORD lent him to us, and you will see him again.
