    UPDATE:

    Clyde is resting well at OHSU Medical Center under close short-term observation, His experienced chest pains last night while on the air, related somewhat to his embolisms but, it turned out, not dangerously so. More urgent conditions were ruled out by immediate medical response and testing.

    We know that it is worrisome when a show must end abruptly. We wait until there was something substantial to report before we make announcements on this page. As always, THANK YOU for your continued encouragement and support!
