Harry Secombe passes at 79.
I just saw the Peter Sellers bio on American Movie Classics the other day, and found out how important The Goon Show
was in the history of comedy. A Hard Day's Night
and Monty Python had their roots in this groundbreaking British radio show that ran from 1949-1960.

Milan Hlavsa has passed. I never listened to their (Czecheslovakia's Plastic People of the Universe) music, but I found their strength, authenticity and persistence in the face of oppression inspiring. I found this link on Google, looking for an alternative to the NYT link
in Daily Media News
(scroll down). It seems a fitting obit. R.I.P. Milan.
