Local Radio Legend, Recognized Statewide, Passes At Age 65

Gradick Communications President Steve Gradick regrets to announce the passing of radio legend and Georgia Radio Hall of Famer/  Country Music Disc Jockey Hall Of Famer, Warren "Rhubarb" Jones.
 
Jones died following a heart attack in Haralson County Sunday afternoon.
 
Jones achieved legendary status in radio broadcasting. He was the longest running morning radio personality in the Atlanta radio market.
 
"Aside from all of that he was true southern gentleman who loved and adored his children and was proud of and loved being a part of the Tallapoosa community," Gradick said Sunday. "He will be sorely and deeply missed. Gradick Communications is fortunate to have had him on our airwaves these last couple of years."
 
Rhubarb is widely known for his charity events like the Rhubarb Jones Celebrity Golf Tournament for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and his annual March Across Georgia for the LLS. Rhubarb was also an Atlanta co-host for the annual Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon.
