consultant & host of Sounds of the City, which aired weekly on www.radiobangkok.net
in 2006 under the air name of Don Roberts (using my own first name and the last name of my
dear friend and long-time radio buddy and radio personality Lan Roberts, who we lost to lung
cancer at the end of 2007, as a tribute to Lanski); I haven't been on the air since, but still
dabble in programming; although I am now permanently disabled from the effects of chemo and
lung surgery, I'm happy to report that I have survived lung cancer for 5 years, knock on wood,
and hope to one day beat the disease; I would like to send my love and my mahalo's to all
the great people I've worked with over the years and to all the fantastic listeners and fans
who made my time on air so much fun for so many years; far from feeling sad about things I
feel truely blessed to have known, worked with and chatted with so many wonderful people in
so many exciting and exotic places around the world; I have a fabulous wife and daughter to
look after me now that fill my days with joy and pride; my 30 years on the radio have been a
fantastic adventure; thanks for listening..."

chance opportunity at a station while still in high school. I was 16 at my first radio job.

helped bring people some enjoyment or made them feel they had a companion in our station."
