KDNK has lost a beloved friend and cohort. DJ Phathead  - aka Greg Benson -  died in his sleep Saturday night. Recording artist and longtime friend, Izm White, and KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh produced this remembrance. A fund for funeral expenses has been set up at Alpine Bank. No word yet on memorial services.
