We've just received word from a knowledgeable source that Rick Barber, a longtime KOA overnight talk-show host whose program could be heard across much of the U.S. and into Canada prior to his 2012 dismissal, has passed away. No cause of death has been released at this point, but as we reported in April
, Barber had been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. We've included that entire post below, which reveals a great deal about Barber and those who loved him. In the meantime, our sincere condolences to his family, friends and fans.
