Ron Scalera

He was a huge-hearted music-loving good and loyal friend. He died this morning.

I worked for Ron, writing and producing music for CBS where he ran the On-Air Promotion department, from 1990 to 2006. He cared about music deeply and was a fine musician himself.

The end of our working relationship is closely chronicled in my book, Die Happy. He was enormously supportive of this new venture as he was of any creative pursuit chased in earnest. That's just who he was. He loved the best of everything and encouraged all he worked with to aspire to the greatest heights they could achieve.

He was a very good promo man, but what he loved more was riffing, ripping on a Les Paul.

Die Happy by Brock Walsh will, with a little luck, appear in bookstores soon.
