John's iconic "Boogie Checks" were always fun - what a great talent!

BTW, he's not the only "geezer" spinning records in Chicago. Dick Biondi, 15 years John's senior, is also playing the hits on 'LS-FM these days and drawing a fan base all over the country.

Any CHR-jock who is over 50 also has photographs of the station's ownership frolicking with livestock!

Who can forget that uber-rapid-fire Landecker delivery, Americana Panorama and, of course, Boogie Check?!

Superjocks like John and Larry Lujack are the reason I got into radio to begin with and why I'm still in it! I remember growing up in south eastern Indiana listening to these guys on my AM radio in my 65 Chevy Impalla. What a ride!!

John and Larry (Lujack) were both excellent benchmarks for those of us who thought we were pretty good. Those were the days when nobody could get away with snoozing through a shift.
Now, it's required behavior - so as to avoid going crazy.
