I know I will mention it on my radio shift this Sunday on the classic rock station I work for. (WLLW Geneva NY, heard online at www.fingerlakesdailynews.com, just click on The Wall. I am on 1pm-5pm EST on Sundays.)

I also know of the internet station WBME (who airs a Queen show daily) doing a 4 day tribute to Freddie/Queen beginning on November 24th. Many concerts, BBC recordings, Freddie Solo material and a complete Queen A-Z will air.

Anyone know of any others?

I have been looking and have yet to find any other tributes/celebrations of Freddie's life... Anyone else know of any?

The station has updated its site/schedule. Almost every concert is soundboard or official. The A-Z will rock and they're even airing the BBC recordings and Freddie solo stuff.

I would hardly think "celebration" is the right word to commemorate 20 years of Freddie's passing...

Celebrations of his life is what I mean and I imagine what they mean as well.
