The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed over 450,000 lives in the United States alone; worldwide, the number is well over two million. Many musicians and people integral to the music business are a part of that terrible total.

On this week’s Popcast, the second in a recurring series, a handful of remembrances of musicians lost to the coronavirus:

  • Cristina, a haute-post-disco diva of early 1980s downtown New York, who died at 64.

  • Fred the Godson, a Bronx rap classicist and a star of the 2000s mixtape circuit, who died at 41.

  • Adam Schlesinger, a member of the influential power-pop band Fountains of Wayne and a songwriter and composer for countless film and television projects, who died at 52.


  • Kurt B. Reighley, a D.J. and author of the liner notes of Cristina’s 2004 album reissues.

  • Shawn Setaro, a reporter and writer at Complex.

  • Ben Sisario, The New York Times’s music business reporter.
