Smitty would visit us at the Late Night Health studio every week. We talked about radio and the media. Then he stopped showing up. Months later he came in to say good bye. He had stage 4 liver cancer and the doctors gave him a month to live. He shares his journey with Mark Alyn. On a personal note, this is one of the hardest interviews I have ever done in all these years (more than 30) of talking with people. One of the things Smitty did was to release birds at festive events. That explains the photo on this page. And at the request of Smitty, I have not released his last name. A few weeks after this interview Smitty pasted. It’s been a few years since this interview aired but it still resonates with me. Rest in peace my friend.
