just heard of J Dougs death this Xmas party at my brothers in Kansas. He was an amazing broadcaster that i will always remember. He gave me the opportunity to be myself even though we would lock horns quite often. I was so left that i never understood why i was chosen for the Morining Show, but looking back was a brilliant combination of both views, and all my team there at K101 was very professional and is easy on my mind. I escaped to the mountains and actually missed my time at the station, but he did piss me off on occasion, and i was not alone, but J Doug was J Doug, and i am better off for having known him. The fact that he died also pisses me off, but it was his time, and mine will not be so celebrated. I appreciate this opportunity to say good bye and hope the studio in the sky is as advanced as the one he put together at K101.
