NYTimes, By DOUGLAS MARTIN  Published: August 3, 2007  Tommy Makem, 74, Hero of Irish Folk Music, Dies
"Tommy Makem, a songwriter, balladeer and folk singer who with the Clancy Brothers and as a soloist introduced a raucous, revolutionary take on time-honored Irish folk music, first in the United States and then in Ireland, died Wednesday in Dover, N.H. He was 74....." http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/03/arts/03makem.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&oref=slogin.

but more personally...sent to radio dj from Liam Clancy:

From: This Old Porch <joewncw@GMAIL.COM>   Posted: 01-Aug-07 15:06

Good friends - I just got the word from the family that Tommy passed  away at about 6.45PM in Dover NH. As you all probably know he has
been ill for quite a while. His suffering at last is over.
He was a friend and partner-in-song for over fifty years. We shared a great hunk of our lives together. We were a hell of a team. Tommy
was a man of high integrity, honesty, and, at the end, courage. Our paths diverged at times but our friendship never waned. He was my
brother every bit as much as my blood brothers. His death has left a void that cannot be filled. A great entertainer has left us.
All our thoughts and prayers go out now to his family - Katey, Shane, Conor, Rory, Molly and all those close to him.  Liam Clancy

THANKS SO MUCH to the station management fo accommodating  my health issues which allow me to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings and bring you the music that 'moves and sustains me. '
