    Default R.I.P. Tawn Mastrey

    For those of us who are/were from the L.A. area, and remember listening to KNAC 105.5, the best radio station to ever grace the airwaves, one of their original DJ's passed away on Tuesday 2 October.

    http://www.tawnmastreybenefit.com/

    "Legendary rock dj and original member of the KNAC family, Tawn Mastrey died at 10:35pm (Central) on Tuesday, October 2 in Minneapolis at the age of 53. She had been suffering from the effects of Hepatitis C which she contracted as a child.

    Funeral arrangements are pending and will be announced soon.

    All of us here at KNAC.COM send our heartfelt sympathy to her family.

    She will be dearly missed."

    I listened to her on KNAC. Saw her at one of KNAC's sponsored "Rock n' Jock" baseball games. Listened to her on Sirius' "Hair Nation". Watched her point of view on metal in "Decline of the Western Civilization II: The Metal Years".

    I'll miss her voice. Thanks for all the music, Tawn.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Wasn't she a DJ on Sirius Radio fairly recently?
    And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Genesis 21:17

    Wow I didn't know she was sick. That's sad, definitely remember here from KNAC and even KLOS, in the glory days.

    One day I feel asleep to my Sirius Radio and I woke up latter and I hear her voice and I thought I was back in my old room when I was in high school (KNAC days). Just for a moment Tawn took me back to my high school years….

    And every time I would hear her voice on the radio I would always say that lady is the shit, she takes me back.

    RIP Tawn

    Sad to hear. I was wondering where she had been as I hadn't heard her on Hair Nation lately. Didn't know she was sick.

    Tawn Mastrey was a DJ here in the Twin Cities for a few years in the 90s. I wonder if she was from the area originally (hence the reason she was here when she died)?

    I suspect there will be a great number of heavy rock tributes to her very soon.

    RIP.

    She will be missed... The did a benefit car wash here in LA over a month ago for her that featured members of Ratt, Whitesnake, Great White, ETC..

    I remember listening to the Leather Nun here in Lost Angeles on KNAC!

    RIP

    Thank you for sharing the love of Metal music with us!

    Wow, that really sucks. She was a pretty cool DJ, she used to let listeners call in and do lead ins to songs. Between my friend and I we probably did about 10 of them.
    RIP baby
    RIP
