Following the sad death of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett a week ago, we have news of two Syd specials to listen to, one of which is broadcast this weekend.

Roger Keith Barrett
Syd Barrett

Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett passed away peacefully at home on July 7, 2006, from symptoms related to diabetes. The world of music was greatly saddened by his passing, and tributes have come from all sides, and a number of bands have included his music in their performances this week.

Canadian radio station Chez 106 FM, based in Ottawa, have announced that they are airing a special edition of The Legends of Classic Rock - celebrating "one of the most intriguing members of the Classic Rock fraternity." The show airs tomorrow (Sunday, July 16th) at 7pm local time.

The radio station streams their programming on the web, via You need to register yourself into their VIP club, but this is free of charge - and you can sign up from any country, too.

The UK's excellent magazine "The Word" regularly has good coverage of Pink Floyd related matters. As a tribute to Syd, they have recorded a very interesting 23 minute podcast, where musician Robyn Hitchcock remembers Syd in conversation with Word editor Mark Ellen.

You can find the podcast - Word Podcast 6 - using this link at Apple's iTunes, and you can sign up to the XML feed of the podcasts through this link.

Our thanks to Mark and David at The Word for letting us know about this.

Finally, we will keep you posted on the magazine's coverage of Syd's departure.
