In June I wrote about my finally meeting a local radio legend, Cuzin' Dave. Shortly after that Dave fell ill and was laid up in the hospital for over a month.
On Thursday, the day his show always airs on WRUW, Dave passed away. It's real loss for the music community and the Cleveland community as well. Even though I didn't know him very well personally, as with any great radio talent you feel as if you did have a personal connection with Cuzin' Dave. He will be missed by me and so many others.
Here's a story from yesterday's Plain Dealer.
