Nice to read the piece you did on Mike Callaghan’s retirement. I never met him, but we exchanged numerous emails in 2005 and 2006, when I was writing a long history of the now-defunct KPPC-1240 AM in Pasadena, Calif. He sent me quite a few great stories from his memories of working there. If you know anyone who might be interested in that unique station’s history, it’s here.

Jim Hilliker
Monterey, Calif.
