> John Rogers has been a friend and mentor to many of us, not only for his
> honesty in dealing with releases and radio but also  for his fine
> programming talent on the airwaves these many years. I hope that part of
> John's public life continues for a long long time.
> John has a great sense of humor and a great sense of good taste.
