The legendary Hitz FM radio host passed away today. For those in the GTA, and Niagara Regions, who appreciate good music and good radio hosts, this sucks. The man was amazing!

AMF, stay off the pipe Iron Mike!

This made me sad on the way home. KK was fielding calls from listeners with funny Iron Mike anecdotes. One guy called in and said Mike invented the "Blow Henry", something to do with a cute girl licking all the chocolate off an Oh Henry bar.

The guy was never mean to anybody, and was a huge promoter of rock, and new bands.

RIP Mike. 97.7's in my blood......

It was hard to listen to KK. Her and Mike were pretty close. 

 

I've been listening to Mike sense he was on 103.3.
