He's a radio man at heart. World-traveled-and-toured as a DJ. An entrepreneur and restaurant owner of Dip Shabu Shabu. And once upon a time he hosted the morning show on 99.1 KGGI - which to his experience, turned out to be one of the biggest challenges of his career. This is a story of a talented man who has loved, lost, endured and ultimately bounced back more sharpened and superior than before. File this episode under "most relatable." His profound story begins in the IE, moves to Fresno, returns to Riverside and ends up in Artesia. A heartfelt shout out to our friend and fellow radio mentor, the late but great, Tony Banks. The man with the most genuine smile. You gave us a great leader and mentor to look up to. We miss you. We think of you. We thank you.
