Monday NOV 01, 2021 – Sad news broke over the weekend, when Madison House announced veteran booking agent, manager and founding partner Jesse Aratow died on October 29th. A cause of death for Aratow was not disclosed but Madison House said that his passing was unexpected. Some unofficial reports suggest Jesse may have died following a workout at a gym.

Due to unfortunate technical issues related to changing out software, 105.5 The Colorado Sound was unable to air this week’s episode of the show.
