You can’t swing a cat on the DC-focused internet today without hitting mention of George Michael’s passing. It’s unsurprising – you don’t host a recurring news feature for just shy of thirty years without making an impression. I’m sure WaPo will have a good obit up eventually, but for the moment I think the most interesting insight into his life is the community-posted remembrances on the WaPo website. Some more interesting insight into Michael can be had here – a story about his dj career at WABC in the late 70s, complete with some recordings of the man in action.
Rest in Peace, George.
