He absolutely was at WMEX, in the early 70s.  I remember it because one of 
the more surreal moments in local radio occurred when Mac Richmond died 
(which I believe was in 1972)  and John H, who didn't get along with Mac 
any better than anyone else did, went on the air with this incredibly 
emotional tribute to him, one of these "He walked among us..." kind of 
tributes, and I recall sitting there and thinking "but he *hated* the 
guy..." And no, John H. never used a house name on WMEX.  He used John H.
