Known mainly for his work on the Neal Boortz Show, longtime radio producer Royal Marshall died early Saturday morning. As a listener of the show from before I knew what politics were into my formative years, Royal always played the role of the everyman who cracked wise and kept Boortz grounded. He was the closest I think one could get to the lens through which I view politics. At 43, he died way too young. My condolences to his wife, two daughters and the rest of his family and friends.
I didn’t know the man and won’t pretend to, but I will mark his passing with a comedy bit that has made me laugh for years, and I once had the pleasure of seeing him perform live.
This is “Boo Got Shot:”
I’ll miss you, Royal.
