Local DJ and radio personality Dark Star died last week. Known for his rather curmudgeonly ways, Dark Star still amassed plenty of fans now mourning the loss. Author Neal Karlen wrote for MPR Friday morning that, “His death certificate might say “heart failure,” but no one doubts that George Chapple passed away because of a life lived unashamedly as Dark Star.” Occupying the late-night/early-morning slots on WCCO, Dark Star was not averse to George Carlin-style language and “unremitting bull excrement.” No doubt Dark Star is now enjoying a steak dinner in heaven with Carlin himself.
