Thanks to Tata for posting about the shocking and untimely passing of our own occasional contributor and proprietor of The Rix Mix
, Bob Rixon.
I never met Bob in person, but when I was looking for contributors to hold down the fort, Bob, a regular commenter in those days, seemed an apt fit -- and so he was. I have always been a fan of The Rix Mix, with its unique and often poetic musings on life in New Jersey. Bob's Garden State was a gentle and often magical place, far removed from the "Joisey" of Jersey Shore
and The Sopranos
and he brought a welcome calm to this rantblog. We'll miss him.
You can hear Bob's radio archives from his program on WFMU here
and read some of his poetry here
I'll post information about a planned memorial service if I hear anything.
