On Thursday, September 22, 2011 we lost a beloved member of the WGAR family, as Chuck Collier passed away unexpectedly. He was an Ohio boy, whose broadcasting career on the Cleveland airwaves spanned more than 3 decades.
He loved radio and he loved Cleveland... and Cleveland, along all of us here at WGAR and Clear Channel Cleveland, truly loved him. Anyone who ever listened to or met Chuck knew instantly the kind and caring human being he was.
To his wife, his children and entire Collier family ...our sincere condolences, along with our gratitude for sharing Chuck with us.
Rest in peace Chuck...rest in peace.
A few days ago, Garth's youngest daughter, Allie, turned 15. Years ago, when Garth retired, he stated that he wouldn't "hit the road" again until she was out of high school. So-o-o-o-o-o-o, that's 3 years.....2014. Will he hold true to his word & will anybody care by that time?? Well, if his Vegas appearances are any indication, they'll care......still care, because they care now. The Vegas shows at the Wynn resort are doing very well. Should you want to check one out during your down time, here is Garth's Vegas schedule for the rest of the year.
August 19 & 20, September 9 & 10, September 23 & 24, October 7 & 8, October 21 & 22 & November 4 & 5.
There ya' go!! Have at it & good luck!!
