    I worked with J. at WSME AM and FM in Sanford, ME in the early 1970’s. He was so much fun to work with! I remember he would be at the transmitter making adjustments and I would either be in the studio or at home, telling him how the adjustments sounded. He also owned a clam shake and got into station ownership in Maine. I lost touch with him and I’m sorry I didn’t reach out when I found him online about 2 years ago. RIP, J.!
