My sincere Condolences are with Mr. Bradley Mayes Family, Friends and Co-Workers at 700 WLW. I have known Bradley for many years since he was the Program Director on 55KRC 'Ridin' the Wave with Dave' Saturday Evening Show. When I would call into the ATN Show to talk to Steve, Bubba Bo or Dave to give acknowledgements to the ATN Show Sponsors such as: Mr. Dean Michael with MYTAXHELPMD, Mr. MotorKote, Hot Shot Secret and Andy with Turbo 3000. Bradley would always be both be upbeat, positive, professional and a true friend as we would discuss many various topics such as our Reds, Bengals, UC Bearcats, UK Wildcats and OSU Buckeyes. Bradley knew all of the key players along with what each Teams injury problems were for the week as well as, what they needed to do to become a Winner and have a successful Season. Indeed, we had many a great discussion. Now, I feel sadly for 700 WLW as they lost a great Asset to their ATN Show. Just as Bradley is now and will always be Greatly Missed! I will always keep Mr. Bradley Mayes and his Family in my thoughts and Prayers. And will also be contributing to the PNC Bank Bradley Mayes Memorial Fund in Honor of Bradley. Thanks for all of the good memories and special happy times on a Job Well Done at Producing The ATN Show; Rest in Peace and God's Speed Bradley! Sincerely, Pat Kehoe - 700WLW ATN Show = "The Sharp Dressed Man"

Brad was the best cousin anyone could have. I always looked up to him and loved shooting hoops and playing catch, especially around the holidays. His love for the Reds was infectious and he even took our family to our first Major League Baseball game decades ago. Brad will be missed but I know we’ll see each other again someday.
