I never knew Kevin Cleary (aka Kevin The Afternoon Guy). Never met him, but I definitely remember listening to him on the air when I was just getting started in radio. Now being the biz for so many years, I've come to know plenty of people, a lot I work with now, who knew him and worked with him here at iHeart Hartford (then Clear Channel)
Needless to say, when I heard Kevin had passed away a few years ago, I was shocked. Even though I had never met him, learning of his passing I was bummed out. Felt like a member of the team was taken away.
This Sunday there will be a fundraiser in his honor at Black Eye'd Sally's in Hartford in his honor to benefit The Connecticut School of Broadcasting.
LIVE MUSIC ALL DAY. A lot of his former colleagues & friends will be there too.
This Sunday, April 7th at Black Eyed Sally's on Asylum Street in Hartford!
