As you can see from the title of this post, this will be a sad one. It is with a heavy heart that I write this to all of you. On October 29, 2017, the online radio community lost a wonderful broadcaster and friend. Chris Skarstad, 46, died suddenly due to heart complications. He will be missed greatly by all his friends, family and co-workers. I remember him when he used to be here with us on The Q Online, many years ago, and he brought a great vibe and atmosphere to the station.
Here is a quote, from Toonhead himself, that I would like to share (taken from another online radio station’s own tribute): “I was born May 11th, 1971 in Kankakee, IL and have been driving people nuts ever since! Seriously, I’ve been at this broadcasting thing since 1999 and it’s been lots of fun! I’m pretty much like everyone else here. I love to broadcast of course, but I also love playing games, chatting with friends, eating good food and just really enjoying life.”
May you rest in peace, Chris. Hopefully you are looking down on us now and enjoying all the wonderful music in Heaven. Lost but not forgotten!
In loving memory of Chris Skarstad
