Brian was one of the finest human beings I ever knew and or had the
chance to work with. Our work together at WMMS was top notch. He and I
brain stormed regarding the 2000 Buzzard Poster, and I came up with the
concept of the mean Buzzard that was TAKING the Rock N Roll Capital of
the world and wasn't about to ask.... Brian took that idea and an award
winning Buzzard Calender was the result and it all made the cover of FM
magazine which I have framed. Brian and I had lunch on a regular basis
at the Dennys near his job at the TV station for nine years after we did
not work together anymore, just to keep in touch and catch up on things
regarding the local broadcast industry. Brian, I miss the hell out of
you, please know that I am thinking about YOU on this the 5th
anniversary of your death. Please know that I am not the only one that
misses you like crazy dude. The entire city of Cleveland misses you.
Lets do lunch soon.

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
