Condolences to the family and friends of MESA KINCAID, who in the late '70s or early '80s ruled MINNEAPOLIS radio as "the Fox that Rocks" on legendary rock station U100. KINCAID died of a probable heart attack in her home, according to her sister, SHELLEY AUSHAM, reports THE MINNESOTA POST.
KINCAID, born CHERYL HOLM, was 52, and had suffered several strokes throughout her life, the latest three years ago, according to her daughter, COURTNEY GRYNIEWSKI.
KINCAID was one of the first female jocks and the only one among the "Right On Super U" headbangers. U100 lasted only two years, debuting at the 1974 State Fair and dying when competitor KDWB-A bought the signal (technically, 101.3 FM) in SUMMER 1976.
