World Beat Host Mark Thomas Has Passed Away

Longtime KMSU host Mark Thomas has passed away after a long illness.



We're sad to announce that longtime KMSU host Mark Thomas (pictured here with Cocoa during a MacArthur Park singalong in 2012) passed away over the weekend. Mark was a volunteer at KMSU for over 25 years (his World Beat web page has playlists going back to 1990) an he was instrumental in establishing the Saturday night World Music programming.

Mark was always a joy to see when he would visit KMSU, and he was always the source of wonderful and hilarious conversations about virtually every subject under the sun. He truly LOVED doing his show, as well as the possibilities that radio could have. We're really going to miss him.
