Lost Persons, Forgotten Names
By Matthew Caulfield

In the process of searching the MMD Archives for something, I came
across a couple of names that haven't been heard from or heard about in
years.  Back in 1995 Robert Ridgeway, the Sanfilippo collection curator
prior to Marty Persky, was scheduled to have dual knee replacement to
keep him from becoming wheelchair bound.  Does anyone know how that
came out and what he is doing today?

Vic Searle was in a group home in Japan, where he had his home-built
electronic Wurlitzer band organ.  He was also last heard from on the
MMD in 2005.  Any news of Vic today?

Then there is Ray Siou, alive and kicking, I think, but little news
about him these days.
