We remember... Saying goodbye. Muppet legend, once-in-a-lifetime voice, irreplaceable soul, dear friend, Jerry Nelson passed away on August 23, 2012.

In honor of Jerry's 86th birthday (July 10, 1934), we present our annual Jerry Nelson tribute on Muppet Central Radio including some rare performer demos and a special Muppeteer birthday tribute recorded for Jerry's 65th birthday.

It's been a long time since the stations had a good old Jerry Nelson music binge. I understand that it was hard to put theme days for Muppeteers together during the Radionomy days, and I remember it was only just before the Jim Henson Birthday music marathon last year that you figured out how to put theme days together so we couldn't have a Jerry day then. Glad to see you finally have another after all these years!

Glad you're enjoying the music! Jerry has so many great songs and his vocal range is simply amazing.

We now have Muppeteer all-day tributes for Jim Henson, Jerry Nelson and Caroll Spinney.

I’ve always loved the sound of Jerry’s voice. This is wonderful.
Hard to believe it’ll soon be 10 years since his death.

I always found his voice impeccable and recognizable. He was able to do any accent, including Transylvanian. I also love the way he rolled his Rs as the Count.. When I see Jerry's picture, I think of my paternal grandfather, who passed away earlier at age 64. He has similar facial hair.
