Gary Schneider, RIP

 

         It’s with great sorrow and a heavy heart that I announce the passing of our brother, dear friend, and fellow Luxurian Gary Schneider, the host of Open Mynd Excursion. He passed away surrounded by his loving and devoted family early this morning after a long and bravely fought battle with cancer.
        Gary became a part of LuxuriaMusic the way many of us have- through a passion for the music, listenership of our station, and the personal connections made in the chat room. This relationship evolved into an offer to host a program by Chuck Kelley in 2009 and since then, Open Mynd Excursion, airing every Wednesday night at 9pm PT, has been a virtual meet-up of fans, geeks, and aficionados from around the world of radio airchecks, 60’s music, and pop culture.
         Memorials and dedications are being planned; the details of which will be shared with you soon. Gary’s love of collecting music and airchecks, and sharing it all with LuxuriaMusic listeners was surpassed only by his love of family and closest friends. We hold them in our thoughts during this difficult time.
