Re: “R.I.P. BRIAN CHALMERS, ROCK ’N’ ROLL ARTIST

I can't believe this! I just found out today.

Brian and I used to have lunch together and catch up on things at Denny's on Independence. It was his turn to buy. We had our lunches for years after we no longer worked together at WMMS. Brian and I worked together on the 2000 Buzzard Calender the was the Cover of FMQB magazine. Also, the WMMS calender won a national award for marketing. We were mentioned together in Deanna R Adams Rock N Roll and the Cleveland connection.Last time I talked to him, he was upset that his mother broke her hip. My faithful companion Bubba my 11 year old Husky mix passed away in April of 2009 and I tried to contact him then, but didn't connect. You always want to talk to your closest friends when you lose someone close. For me that someone was my constant companion for a decade, my dog. I was pretty lost for awhile, but now this!!

I still can't believe it! Brian was one of the nicest people I met in Cleveland. I moved for 20 years from station to station and Brian and I became fast friends in 1997 and weathered out most of the storms at WMMS until the Clear Channel storm took me first when they purchased WMMS in 1999.

I know I will have a friend up there when I get there Brian! I am not sure if I am not all the far behind you
