The Deep Blue
Saturday November 19th, 2016 with VH3 & Jon Degan
A tribute to Darryl Christopher

We lost a good friend recently, Darryl Christopher Socha, also known as DJ Darryl Christopher. This show is a tribute to Darryl, a true friend of ours, and a long-time supporter of the Deep Blue & Deep Blue Afterhours on CKCU. Darryl was someone like no other, who had a love of writing, philosophy and trance music, and was a staple of the Ottawa music scene. This show is our way to say thank you to Darryl for being part of our lives, and to offer a place to pay tribute to him. We close the show with part of a mix Darryl did, that we had been planning to air on the Deep Blue. Now is a chance to re-live some of the inspiring trance that Darryl loved so much, by the power of radio to hear his selections, and to say thank you for being a true friend. We will miss you!

This studio is a place for people with mental illness to drop by and create art. It's something that Abe & Darryl were both passionate about.
A great track and a beautiful tribute, Abe!

I've known Darryl for over 30 years and he'll be missed. He truly was one of a kind, cant believe he's gone. Thanks for the tribute.
