Call for Johnny Morris

morrisstagemorrispoetessThey came because they knew Johnny Morris as a engineer. Others came because they knew Johnny Morris as a dj. And still others came because Johnny Morris was Poetess’ father. The main reason they all came was to salute a man who has worked in the radio business for 45 years, first as the first black Chief Engineer in Southern California and then as a Radio DJ. Johnny has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, which is in remission according to Johnny, and the community showed up to make donations to help Johnny defray some of his medical expenses and to salute the veteran.   (Photo above: Johnny Morris on stage with , Felicia “Poetess” Morris)

Johnny Morris is one of the true pioneers in this business. It never ceases to amaze me that in this communication business we do not share important information like Johnny’s current illness. We have been friends for more years than I can count, yet I was not informed about his present condition for what ever reason. A consumate pro, and a true gentleman. Johnny Morris, I love you man!!!!!!
