  1. I hope I have the correct gentleman. I use to listen to “Barnes” on KCSJ radio. He would call in every day. I got to know him through radio. I really feel like I knew him. I have missed hearing him on the radio. He really brightened my day. He was a lot of fun and had a great sense of humor. I’m sorry he is gone, but I am happy he touched my life and others through radio.
