She’s been Minnie’s voice for about 30 years. She even married the actor who voiced Mickey until his death. Never connected her name with the Simpsons. A real shame

Minnie Mouse's voice is going to be some big shoes to fill.

The makers of The Simpsons would be screwed if anything happened to, say, Harry Shearer or Hank Azaria, Heck they were almost cancelling the show when Harry Shearer was reluctant to re-sign a few years ago weren't they?

Harry Shearer also wouldn’t sign off on the ride so his characters are visible but silent.

David Berman, of Silver Jews and most recently Purple Mountains, has passed away at age 52. 

That Purple Mountains records is one of the best of the year and I would encourage everyone to listen to it.

Having read some interviews with him recently it was clear that he had been in a really dark place but was getting better. 

Sad news.

I haven't had chance to listen to the Purple Mountains album yet, though the first track released was as good as he's ever been. Silver Jews were incredible, and Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea is one of my all-time favourite records. Very sad news.

Just a quick heads up. On the 6Music show that's on between 9 and midnight tonight they are going to play a Silver Jews session at some point. Something you might want to listen to on catch up.

 First time I heard his music was on Cable Jukebox back in the 80s!  Learned quite a bit from Johnny.

Aw that's a shame. Just read this. Johnny Clegg and Savuka provided a few songs for the cracking "Rainman" soundtrack in the late 80s. Mixture of Hans Zimmer and Clegg on there.

Bloody hell. She died in February but it's only just been announced. Something odd is going on if you read the news articles

Years Stavo, for years I have tortured myself and been conflicted over that remarkable specimen. Actually really saddened to read that. Genuinely am

Mates were texting about this too, and I got tagged on Facebook. Bizarre that to a few people, I'm synonymous with the lass.

Oh. I wondered who it was about. I kind of remember the show. Saw some clips on YouTube of her "outing" herself at the end of the series. Get husband reckons it was under suspicious circumstances, and if they've held off on announcing her passing for the better part of 6 months it looks like there may be something afoot.

Jeffrey Epstein has killed himself, my natural reaction was good riddance but he could have been key to getting so many more high profile offenders named and put away.

Of course every single Twitter reply to the news is that he's been killed to shut him up etc.

Genuinely had never heard of him until about 2 weeks ago. Grim that the NY Post published a photo of him on a gurney on the way to hospital...or did they?

He was meant to be on suicide watch though wasn’t he?

Not to be a conspiracy nut but this death is very convenient for a lot of powerful people
