Gary L. Mitchell just launched a podcast in October with his cousin, another Atlanta radio veteran Silas SiMan Alexander called ‘Cousins with Cancer.’ SiMan, a Georgia Radio Hall of Fame inductee, was diagnosed with the same cancer 3 months after Mitchell.
The announcement of the iconic and beloved DJ was flooded by heartfelt tributes and condolences across social media.
You won't find a better one.
