Julie Gilbert-Cahill, a well-known radio promotion director and music manager in the 1980s and ’90s, has died. She was 58.
Gilbert-Cahill died suddenly at home of unexpected causes July 20 in Woodland Hills, according to Jeff Pryor at Priority PR.
The Detroit native first served as the head of promotion for the ABC-owned rock ’n’ roll radio station WRIF-FM in the Motor City.
“She was a fearless, energetic promotion person who played a huge role in our success,” said Fred Jacobs, president of Jacobs Media and former WRIF-FM program director.
In 1983, Gilbert-Cahill moved to Los Angeles to coordinate tours for major artists including Jimmy Buffett, Heart, Fleetwood Mac and Chicago at Howard Kaufman’s HK Music Management firm.
She then moved to Peter Asher Management and worked with Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell and others. She retired from the business in 1996.
Survivors include her husband, Jim, and sons James and Jake.
A memorial service will be held Thursday. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Temple Judea.
