Glenn Gale and Steve Davis - radio and cancer on The Adelaide Show Podcast

Steve Davis, left, with Glenn Gale

UPDATE: On Thursday, July 14, 2016, Glenn Gale finally passed away after a gritty and committed fight with cancer. RIP Glenn Gale.

Glenn Gale ruled the airwaves on 5MU for many, many years. Before that he was at 5KA and before that he was at most hit stations up and down the eastern seaboard.

Tonight, we spend some time reflecting on his life as the ‘morning DJ’ and get insights from him into the realm of being confronted by cancer and the way he has chosen to deal with it.

You will meet a man who has few regrets but who would dearly love more time to be with the people who dearly love him!
