JAMES “Jimmy Mack” COCHRAN
Passed away today 12/30/08
We are sad to report the passing of James Cochran. I met Jimmy on several occasions while working at Album Network/Urban Network in Burbank. Jimmy was at Motown for many years. His circle of friends is deep and wide. Very friendly and kind.
I know Miller London who runs Urban Network was very close to Jimmy.
One extract from the work James Cochran did:
