“Goodbye” is a program that addresses illness and death in a reflective and humorous way. The show is based, almost entirely, on philosophical and absurd phone calls between Joe and friends. Mike Fremuth and Joe discuss the idea of “heroic melancholy.” A series of comic conversations with Lester Nafzger concerning illness and old age conclude with Joe’s description of being left at the airport after visiting with his parents in Florida. Joe and Larry Block discuss the idea of hanging people instead of paintings in museums, and Gideon Brower recalls attending an outdoor wedding during a forest fire. Also included are conversations with a doctor which took place shortly after Joe experienced kidney failure, and an excerpt from Mike Fremuth’s moving eulogy of a friend.
