John was the studio engineer responsible for helping get the show on the air every day for the last couple of years. We shared a wonderful rapport, and always had a great banter during the commercial breaks. He was so helpful as I quizzed about him radio, and more specifically, the San Diego Area, as he was a long time resident and I was a neophyte.
News of his passing caught us all off guard, so unexpected for a vibrant, active, young man, with the world by the tail.
Thanks John, I will miss you!
