John is a native of Lawton and a 1984 graduate of Cameron University's Electronics Technology program. His love of listening to music goes back to sitting in front of the AM radio for hours as a child and later as a teenager tuning distant stations when they became audible late at night, often recording broadcasts on an old tube based reel-to-reel recorder. These interests eventually led him to pursue work in the field of electronics covering multiple disciplines from computer to microwave and satellite communications. John came to KCCU after a career in television and radio production and engineering with the Army and the Air Force. He is married and has one daughter and two grandchildren.
