John Pinette was a brilliant stand-up comedian I had a chance to meet on a couple of occasions. He was a fixture on the Lanigan & Malone show. John was in Pittsburgh for a family function, and passed away there this weekend at only 50 years old.
Here's his best work. The "I'm Starvin'" HBO special (there's a little cussing in it, but it's clean for the most part.) Hopefully they have a nice "all you can eat" buffet waiting for him where he's goin'.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
