The radio world is still reeling from the death of Bill Gable.
The 46-year-old radio veteran passed away last Tuesday (9-18-18) after a battle with COPD. He was 69. Gable retired from radio after a stellar career that included stops at CKLW Windsor-Detroit, KHJ Los Angeles, WHBQ Memphis, WLW Cincinnati, CFTR and CHFI Toronto and his last stop, AM 740 (CFZM) Toronto.
