Hi Rachel. I’m very sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Marsha at all apart from her posts here. There’s a lot of genuine grief here which shows you what type of effect Marsha had on the people that came in contact with her and the love they have for her, that’s a reflection of the type of person she was.  I hope it’s of some small comfort to you in the tough days ahead. Take care.  

Rachel and GL -- I am so sorry for your huge loss.

And Dublinpaul -- Ditto. Thank you - you expressed my own thoughts perfectly.

Oh Rachel, I so wish I could help. If you can get a VPN (I use Windscribe), there are free ones you can use in your chrome browser, that let your PC think you are in the USA. I'm listening to the show now from Scotland without signing up. I'm not sure I'm on the right show but hope so.

I'm no IT expert, perhaps someone on here can help. If I can record it on my phone I will and get it to you somehow.  Even if I can send what he says before Rosie, I'll try. 

Hope you are ok..

I tried a private window which google says is the same thing and I changed all my time zone/preferences to US but sadly it still won’t work, because it knows my IP address. I’m sure that someone will be able to record out there though and either way I’ll listen to Rosie at the same time

I couldn't do it on a Mac either. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't!

I'm smiling at this comment, as Marsha only had like 4 tunes from Bruce that "weren't" her favorite. I believe she would say this tune would be in her Top 10, along with about 75 other songs.  

I know we would joke about that all the time! She would always say how her favourite song changes every day. There was nothing better than her excitement every time a Bruce song played

I think someone has recorded it for us! So don’t worry. Thank you so much though ❤️

That's good. I've been listening to the guy from Scrubs for the last hour. Good tunes though..

Here's the dedication, and Rosie, and Seaside Bar Song.

I just let the recording run until my zoom call, so there's more after that. ;)

When I click on it to "open in a new tab" (or window) it saves it to my download folder - may have to do that and then play it from there.

  2021-03-24 E St. Radio dedication.m4a 7.89 MB · 5 downloads

 

Thank you so so much! I’ve just saved it and downloaded it to my drop box so I can share it with her friends and family. I appreciate you taking the time to record it so much. It really made me cry, I’m so happy that those songs were played for her

Oh wow. That is one of her favourite songs. She would play it for the children in her class all the time. I’m crying, I really hope she’s smiling 

Not two weeks ago, Marsha shared some of her videos with me of her class in 2013 exercising and dancing to Seaside Bar Song and, of course, Rosie.  The kids were having a ball and she was laughing in the background -  priceless.

I saw some of those videos too -  I think she must have been a wonderful teacher.

She showed me those videos a few times when I stayed with her. I wish that I had them saved so I could watch them now. It was just the epitome of joy

This is all so heartbreaking.

It really is. It still doesn’t feel real. I feel like I’m living a horrible nightmare

I woke up today and its cold and dewy and a bit foggy

Like somewhere a bright light has gone out

I was hoping yesterday was just a really bad dream

That's lovelly what the radio did for her

album version of Rosie - remaster, though ;) 

That remastered WIESS album is a work of art

Its a perfect tribute

But as you said she had so many favourites  - just not kitty or the 78 intro

She got so cranky on the last leg of the 2016 river tour because i kept wanting a long kitty and Bruce kept playing them for her :lol:

I just played this and broke down. Saying goodbye is the hardest thing we can do. I think Marsha was at this show too. 
 

I have no idea how to deal with loss or grief but oh my god this is the worst pain I’ve ever felt. I miss her so much
