Shotgun Johnny Ringo is no religious man. He is the devils best friend just like he has always been. Worthless man.

Does anyone remember DJ Johnny "Shotgun" and "Rock and Roll" Ringo??? Where is he now? Is he still playing on radio anywhere? He was on WNYS in 1983 and left the station. He was a great DJ here, like Shane! He played stuff like The Top 5 at 5, The Top 5 before 5 and the Top 10 at 10!!! Shane requsted one hit of Michael Jackson, a new hit in 1983 called "Pretty Young Thing" for me and Ringo played it!!! I met Ringo at A Special Olympics Fundraiser that year-1984! He was the only celebrity there, but it was great having him join us of that great fun/dancing night!!! I miss him and loved him!!! Is he still alive??? Can anyone reply to me of this???

Bob ditto is very much alive. I'm happy to say I work with him. He is a pilot and had that same off the wall personality he obviously had back in the 70s. I work with him at Atlantic Aviation. He works as a line tech there. Bob is a one of a kind. He told us of his days as a dj and radio personality.

If you are referring to the Shotgun Johnny Ringo" who is/was something like 6 foot 7 and screamed into the radio, I THINK he is still alive. I have been reseaching him for years and he is like a ghost. Others say they think he is alive too. He would be somethink like 57 years old now and did not use ANY drugs at all.
If you are referring to the bald,moustached Shotgun Johnny Ringo, I haven't a clue as to where he is.
wish i knew where he was also, would love to catch up and know if he is ok. I hope his life turned out well, when he was dj'ing here he was into some stuff...long time ago but i have great memories of my time spent with him

What ever happened to this forum??? Now all you have are trolls and imbeciles posting here. This forum is no better than the restroom walls at some high school where cowards write their childish insults about their classmates because they don't have the stones to say it in person to their faces. Then you have the imbeciles in response trying to defend themselves against these anonymous cowardly scumbags which only fans the flames of stupidity. Reminds me of an old proverb; "Those who write on s__thouse walls roll their s__t in little balls. Those who read these words of wit eat those little balls of s__t!"
Bon appetite!

Tbird ruined this forum. Whenever someone makes a normal post, he turns it into a personal attack
Why is it that the guilty are the first to speak up? Are you really as uneducated as your driveling makes you appear? It certainly appears that way from my brief perusal of this forum.
Bon appetite, Troll!

Shotgun Johnny Ringo now lives in Birmingham, AL. He has been out of radio for almost twenty years and now flies planes for a living.

Does anyone know where Former DJ Stan Roberts is now? Stan was the morning DJ in the early 1970's at WGR until 1981. I remember his voice too. He was that wacky, very funny guy on GR 55, very corny and loves jokes too. Remember his "Dial-A-Joke" Christamas Shows on GR? The kids called in their jokes on Christmas Day, and boy they were very funny! Does anyone remember the funniest joke he told? I do! Here it is: What did Kenny Rogers say when he did a jump over the Grand Canyon with his motorcycle and the wheel came off? A) You Picked A Fine Time To Leave Me Loosewheel!" I remember Shane recieved a letter from me and it had that joke written in it I wanted him to know from Stan! He read it and sure loved that joke!!! Anyway, Stan was one of my most favorite morning djs!!! Remember that nickname the fans called him? It's This "Stan The Man"! Shane called him that too! I heard on one of Shane's 1977 shows, Shane was trying to get the fans to win something they could do with Stan! Very cool! I remember writing a lot to Stan at WGR and he described me and even many other fans who loved him a very special friend to him. He enjoyed hearing a lot about my talents and my sports too. I even wrote ti him at WBEN too and recieved a letter back from him! Stan was inducted into The Buffalo Broadcaster's Hall of Fame in 2004! Now one of his fellow workers at Gr Frank Benny was inducted in 2010, next in 2011, Shane will be inducted into the Buffalo Broadcaster's Hall of Fame! Shane is the 3rd WGR DJ to be inducted of this superb WGR group of DJ's in the Mid-1970's! My most favorites from that group of DJS are: 1. Shane, 2. Stan Roberts and 3. Frank Benny. Stan also did weather on Channel 2 in the early 70's. Stan, Shane and Frank were loved most by fans! They are most remembered by fans! Who would ever forget this great team of Buffalo Radio? They were the longest running radio team on WGR!!!

Maybe not then but Shotgun is very religious. Devout Catholic who attends Mass daily.
