Marcia Wallace of Simpsons/Newhart Fame & Lou Reed Pass Away
Marcia Wallace, who starred on the classic sitcom ‘The Bob Newhart Show’ along with voicing Mrs. Edna Krabappel on the Fox animated series ‘The Simpsons,’ has passed away at the age of 70. Marcia passed just one week before her 71st birthday due to complications from breast cancer.
Also, Modern Rock pioneer and Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed has died at age 71.
Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, director of the feature documentary film Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart, confirmed Reed’s death Sunday to USA TODAY.
Reed had a liver transplant in May, although a cause of death has not yet been released.
As a 30 year radio personality I must admit I’m deeply saddened by this loss. I recall playing Lou’s music on the radio over my career. Songs like “Sweet Jane”, “I’m Sticking With You” and my favorite “Take a Walk On The Wild Side”.
You will be missed Marcia and Lou.
