Sad day in the music business indeed...

Regarding the Rifleman...I watch Rawhide and Wyatt Earp that aired when I was four or five years old...Trippy indeed. The gun culture and the killing POC without blinking an eye...Amazing brainwashing for young children watching in the '50's.

Daniel Kaminsky, Internet Security Savior, Dies at 42
“He did things because they were the right thing to do, not because they would elicit financial gain,” his mother, Mrs. Maurer, said.

(When a reporter asked Mr. Kaminsky why he did not exploit the DNS flaw to become immensely wealthy, he said that doing so would have been morally wrong, and that he did not want his mother to have to visit him in prison.)

Silicon Valley’s giants sought Mr. Kaminsky’s expertise and often tried to recruit him with lucrative offers to serve as their chief information security officer. He politely declined, preferring the quiet yeoman’s work of internet security.

Supposedly, when Dylan was starting out he visited Woody Guthrie and played for him. Woody said, "I don't know if that boy is going to make it as a songwriter but he sure has got a voice."

NPR put up a piece on him.
Among the great folk and blues artists to play live on Fass' radio show were Joni Mitchell, Odetta, Carly Simon, Taj Mahal, The Incredible String Band, Moondog, The Holy Modal Rounders, Phil Ochs, and Bob Dylan, who joked around and took listener calls on one show in 1966.

One caller praised Dylan's writing and guitar playing but urged him to "sing a little better."

"I appreciate that," Dylan responded. "Good, solid, rock-bottom, foundational criticism."

A lot of what you posted about Mr Fass could have been (actually was) written about Gene Shay at WXPN in Philly.  They were peers.  Gene died of COVID last year at 85.  He was one of the founders of the Philly folk festival and had a lot to do with the folk / alternative vibe in Philly for 50 years.

He would be the man most likely.  I grew up in Cal up until 1969 having listened to SF Bay Area radio until 1965 and then moved to SoCal when basically there was a huge migration of SF DJ's south to L A .  Jim Lange, Kasey Kasem, Bob Eubanks to name some IIRC.  AM radio in L A just exploded after they all arrived.  But freeformish radio was just getting started in L A late 67 with the station in Pasadena KPPC and up north in the Bay Area.

When I moved east to Philly in 1969, while culturally it was like going back in time 10 years, there was already a very healthy underground radio presence with WMMR and what was  then WDAS.  Everybody stopped by in The Electric Factory back then. Toss in the proximity to NYC and musically it was like I died and went to heaven, building on all of the west coast influence I brought east with me.  The East added Folk Rock to my knowledge base and all of the stuff like this that came with it.  Then I moved to Cleveburg 50 years ago this month and found sister station WMMS and the other WNCR which were just getting going in the same way as Philly, but it was more Rock based here.  And of course we easily pulled in good old CKLW on AM. For a very long time WMMS was just as eclectic as RP.  Pretty much over in the mid 90's though and it was a bust out here until I found RP in 2001.  My musical life since then has mostly resumed to what I have been accustomed to most of my life. 

So I would have to say looking back, I owe Mr Fass an awful lot of thankfulness and gratitude without ever having actually heard the man on air.
