John Frederick Bio

John moved to Oregon to track down Bigfoot. On weekends he camps in the remote wilderness with his faithful hunting dogs Ringo and Brutus, the chiweenie, searching for signs of his elusive quarry. As the Hunt continues, JohnBoy bides his time by doing the Morning Show with Mark Raney, singing Beatles songs and hangin’ with his kids and two grandsons.

John is an avid sports fan. He claims he grew up in Tiger stadium in Detriot. He says he has seen his beloved Tigers, Redwings and Pistons all win championships and he won’t die happy until he sees the Lions win the Superbowl. (Good luck with that and the bigfoot thing Buddy!)

COMING SOON, A BETTER PICTURE OF JOHN, (without goofy looking Mark standing there) SO YOU CAN TELL WHAT THIS GENTLE GIANT REALLY LOOKS LIKE, BLUE/GREY EYEBALLS, CROP TOP, TATS AND ALL!!!!! CAN’T YOU JUST TASTE THE ANTICIPATION???

HERE IS A BIO ACTUALLY WRITTEN BY EMMA HERSELF; NOW THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO SAY, ‘I DON’T KNOW HER!’ Read On..

Hey! I’m Emma, or Emily if you’d prefer. I was born on Christmas Day, 1981 in Honolulu Hawaii. I grew up in Delta Jct. Alaska & Grants Pass Oregon…a perk from the divorce I suppose. 🙂 I graduated from Grants Pass High School in 2000. I love playing and watching sports, with the exception of golf and baseball. If I needed a nap, I’d just take one. Board sports are a favorite of mine, especially long/skateboarding and snowboarding for sure! I also love comedy and music, which is why I love my job!! Go ahead, turn me on…10-2 every weekday…Right here on 96.1 KZEL!
