        Waylon was a super star. He arrived, with his wife Jessi, at the studies of KGBS FM in Los Angles one night to talk to the DJ, Rabbit.
        I was the studio/transmitter engineer, baby sitting the transmitter readings for Rabbit and doing night production. You needed a first phone license to do transmitters back then. I had one. Rabbit didn't at that time
        I started radio at KMET FM underground rock and roll. And I looked it. I had handled all sorts of remotes from The Grateful Dead to KLAC's Friday night live at the Palomino that featured the top country artists like Tom T. Hall. I liked a lot of them, but no artist took my mind off the work at hand.
        Waylon came back into the studio to cut some promos. I loved his music. His songs such as "I've Always Been Crazy" were so true for my life. I had never heard music that touched me the way his music did.
        There was just something about him. He was so easy going, yet so aware of the world. I was so in awe I forgot to put the tape deck into record. I discovered this when I went to cue up the cuts to overlay them on some music. I had to go into the studio and tell him what I'd done. I was so embarrassed.
        He not only didn't rat on me for messing up, came and re-recorded the promos without a nasty expression, he confide in me that I'd just paid him the greatest compliment. That when a strange, cold sober, rock and roller got so impressed with him they stopped functioning, he figured he must be communicating his feelings.
        From the day I heard it, I loved his music. But from that special night forward, I love the man, too.
                                We miss you Waylon
