Fred McLeod, long time Detroit and then Cleveland sports broadcaster, dead at 67 of a heart attack. Growing up with him in Detroit for many years when he was calling Pistons games, I'm in shock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBrwPY8D65M

Cars vocalist Ric Ocasek, at 75.
Ric's passing is sad to hear. The Cars are one of my favorite bands; they were introduced to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year.

RIP Ric Ocasek.  :cry:

I predict some radio stations might be doing tributes to acts with two of game shows’ most favorite things: Money (as in Eddie Money) and Cars (Ric Ocasek).

RIP to both.

Brian
