Re: Shortwaver broadcaster shot dead
He used to purchase time on WBCQ, Monticello, Maine,
USA when i was working there as a board op. He was
usaully a pretty good guy but about once a month there
would be some issue with his scheduling, etc. I
believe he was still on the air up there until the
time of his death.
