A fond Firesign farewell to Peter Bergman

Dear Friends. First Davy Jones. Now Peter Bergman, as reported by John Rabe. Today we're all bozos on this bus, and we all spell our names DANGER.

Hard to imagine surviving high school without the Firesign Theatre. Or life since high school.

Still, can't quite come up with a Firesign Theatre quip or bit to sum up the feelings. Or to puncture the pomposity. Well, there is always "Beat the Reaper." Instead, here's my appreciation from KQED's "The California Report" on the occasion of the Firesign 40th anniversary in 2006.

So long Peter. Back to the shadows again.
