KFAI Celebrates the Life of Willie Murphy With Special Programming and Archives

Many KFAI programmers have set aside time during their shows to salute our recently departed friend (and former KFAI DJ) Willie Murphy. Willie was a frequent guest on our airwaves over the years, and we've gone digging through the archives to repost some of our favorite moments. Watch this space throughout the week for new/old shows, memorials and testimonials.
