I am so sad to read of the passing of longtime Ottawa broadcaster Gary Michaels.
I got to know him when we worked together for CHUM in Ottawa. Always a smile, always a kind word, and always a laugh!
Every few months or so I’d get a random email from Gary expressing a thought or two on radio trends, or asking me my opinion on this or that. Always with that gentle tone, always with great passion.
His last Facebook post (from this past Friday) is typical Gary.
Damn I’m going to miss him.

My daughter asked me for a pet spider for her birthday. So I went to our local pet shop and they were $70. I thought, forget it, I can get one cheaper off the web.”
