CAB Legacy Honoree: Sean "Bull" Robertson

It was way too early, but we need to salute the passing of a person well on his way to legend status before being abruptly taken from us at the age of 54.  Bull was a fixture in the Tremont Cleveland area and loved the area and vibe from a booming city and market. A graduate of St Ignatius, Bull went on to CLE State. After a short he began his musical career at WMMS, becoming the Music Director, while holding down the mid-Day drive slot. From WMMS, he then went to WENZ and 87.7 to mention a few. Bull was as passionate about Notre Dame as he was about the CLE and he loved the Browns, Indians and Cavs and there are many who share the belief Bulls passing was blow to the success and future of the Cl E music scene.

 Bull was frequently dressed in all black with his normal buzz haircut. To be clear, a perfect night to Bull was to be with his puppy on the front porch during a rain storm with his longtime girlfriend, Mary Clair. As a Music Director, Bull was one of the better guys to ever keep the seat warm. Rarely, if ever did I get a “no’” from Bull when requesting an appearance or promotion. No matter how crazy things were, Bull was willing to ease the rules-to make the event/promotion workable. Bull’s passion and relationship ‘style’ with the bands and artists will never be matched in CLE radio. Rest well my friend.
