by Randy Shaw on June 2, 2008

The legendary Utah Phillips died last week, following a long bout with chronic heart disease. Phillips was frequently heard on KPFA and other alternative radio stations, and was an inspiration to us all until the end. Amy Goodman, host of Pacifica’s Democracy Now, wrote a wonderful tribute to Phillips available at seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/365106_amy30.html.
