Jeff Metcalf's "Requiem for the Living"


After a long, valiant and inspiring battle with prostate cancer, the writer and teacher Jeff Metcalf died Friday, June 12, 2020. He was a great friend of the show. In 2014, he joined us to talk about his memoir, Requiem for the Living, about his fight to stay alive. Jeff's vivacity and humor were infectious, his determination was uplifting, and his kindness was a blessing to all he met. He will be dearly missed by our community.
