Hello there Charlie! It was very nice to see you again after 30 years ago, when I had a food booth at the Taste of San Pedro for my business McCowan’s Market. Our business was a three generation company established in 1929 by Grandpa, John Guy McCowan. My father, Ayers McCowan came into the family business after the war in 1947. I was a baby boomer, like yourself. I came into the business in 1966 and had 42 wonderful years in the business. I had recently sold the business to another businessman that had failed the business in 8 months, that was a real heartbreaker for me, seeing that happen. Oh well, enough of me~ Charlie you look great, and it looks like you’re having fun and doing well. I read through all of your history in radio-land, you are truly one of very few in your business that really puts your heart into what you do. Charlie, you are a parallel comparison in the music-world~what Vince Scully is to baseball and what Chick Hearn was to basketball. As you announce your show, you give a great play by play of the musicians and their history and also current happenings~ I’m sure the musicians like that a lot as I do as a K-EARTH listener. Another Kudos to you Charlie, when you talk on the phone to the listeners, your personality expresses a genuine sincerity that is very refreshing. Keep up the good work Charlie, from a very appreciative listener of yours. When you told me about your Mom in Nebraska with her computer and video camera, that really touched my heart~Kudos to you Charlie!
Sincerely, John McCowan
