I had hesitated posting about Spalding Gray's death, but after yesterdays front page story and all the unofficial tributes to him, for those of us who loved his work at 1pm on WNYC (NPR) on the Leonard Lopate show there will be a replay of an interview with Spalding Gray.


If you're not familiar with his work you really ought to rent or borrow or buy his film version of "Swimming to Cambodia" - it's worth having in your film library.

Here is a link from today's NY Times: Spalding Interrupted

Gray had a good relationship with On the Boards, a Seattle presenter, and so we saw him here often, fairly early in his career. I have very fond memories of his work, particularly "Interviewing the Audience." He was like a surreal version of Dick Cavett, both commenting on the bizarre nature of our "15 minutes of fame" and lovingly participating in it. His death saddens me immenesly, particularly since he didn't seem to see any other possibilities.
