On January 05, 2021 we lost a part of our family. We lost a brother. We lost a loved one. A husband was left. A father took his last breath.
As his wishes would have it, Uncle Phester requested to do one more show before he took his last breath and we done everything in our power to make it happen. We had planned to do a final show with Uncle Phester a day or two later but, as Uncle Phester dictated our lives at that point in time, he snuck up on us and made us do it on that Tuesday. Nevermore and JJ (PTSDog) made it a point to get to his bedside so that we could broadcast a live show with him.
After arriving and setting up, we went live as soon as Nevermore told Bo they were good-to-go. After Bo introduced everybody, Uncle Phester smiled and completed his last show with DV Radio.
Since then, there isn’t one day that goes by that us at DV Radio aren’t thinking of him. His wife, Mrs. Phester (a.k.a. Mama P.) is a part of the DV Radio Family as much as Uncle Phester was and is. He may not have served in the military but he served his country as a fireman. He sacrificed his life every single day for the community and we couldn’t be more proud, honored, and have the pleasure of having him as a part of the DV Radio Family.
In memorandum of our brother, we created a t-shirt just for him. We tried our best to give Mama P. the proceeds but she wasn’t having it as she said Uncle Phester would want DV Radio to continue and that we better use it to keep the lights on. We done as we were told because we keep our promises and we promised Uncle Phester that, so long as we were all breathing, we’d try our best to respect his last wishes.
June 27th is Uncle Phester’s birthday and on that day we will bring back Uncle Phester’s t-shirt. There it will stay unless something happens to the DV Radio Crew. (We’re quite sure that they all have it in their Wills that this shirt is to stay and be available for all for the end of time.)
This newsletter isn’t an easy one to write but it needs to be done. We know it isn’t easy to listen to, but if you’d like to hear the last show with Uncle Phester, please do so by going here
