Genial Johnny

Johnny Simmons, the radio gods’ gift to Morning Edition, is retiring today after over twenty years as local host at KUSP in Santa Cruz, CA. I was lucky enough to share an office with the man for a little under two years. It was like journalism school, except they were paying me. A little. Thanks for everything, Genial. Anyone who ever heard you on the air will miss you. Bow down, bitches.

Today is Johnny’s final day on the job and the end of an era. Do your ears a favor and listen from 5-9 Pacific!
