Hal Ketchum is a free spirit, and was always a super nice guy. I first met him in the early 1990s when he was doing the radio rounds promoting his debut (and BIGGEST single), “Small Town Saturday Night.”
He had a couple of other big songs: “Past the Point of Rescue” and a remake of “Five O’clock World.”
Well, we got some sad news this morning. Hal Ketchum’s wife has posted online that Hal is suffering from Alzheimers and can not perform any more. She did go on to report that he is happy and healthy otherwise.
For those of us who have had family members suffer from this, we know the road ahead is not easy.
Our best wishes.
