I met John T in 1982 when I first moved to Portland after a devorce. I sat down to listen to the radio and on came John's show "Indian World". I was so thrilled to hear some traditional Native music, I got up and danced and then later I called him to tell him how grateful I was that he was playing Native music and how it made me feel more at home and less stressed in the strange large city of Portland. He invited me to come down to the studio one day and I did. It was then that I met my best friend of 25 years or more. He taught me the production part of the show and he then he taught me how to be a co-host and co-producer of the show.
