Jay Michael

Old Mon has gotten a couple of queries about the whereabouts of old WCAE jock Jay Michael. He put out an APB, and long-time bud John Mehno came up with the 411: "Finally got the answer on Jay Michael. He's in poor health, living in a nursing home in Las Vegas."

Not great news, but at least he's still around and in Vegas.

Thanks for the update, Kathy. We heard he was doing pretty poorly. Another part of old radio history is gone.

I am Cindy, Jay's daughter and I thank you for your interest in my dad. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is running a piece on him due to come out any day now. It has an email attached to it for any comments or memories anyone would like to share with the family. My goal now is to have him inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. I think he has a place there.

Cindy - We're all sad to hear about Jay's passing, and offer our condolences to you and his family and friends. A little bit of our youth left with him - Ron

FYI unfortunately the Post-Gazette had decided not to run the story on Jay since he died a few weeks prior, and they judged the story not to be timely enough.

Thanks, Scott. And Cindy, if you keep up with the posts, send me your dad's bio. - Ron
