For two years beginning in 1959, John was a member of the multi-award-winning news department at KILT-Houston and then moved on to KOGO-San Diego until joining KRLA in 1965. Inspired by the Monterey Pop Festival of '67, John approached the station with the idea of an audio history of pop music. John tells the story from his home in Quanah, Texas: "The plan was to do interviews with, maybe, fifty of the most influential contributors to Pop music in the '50s and '60s and weave them into some 25 programs. Two years later, when "The Pop Chronicles" made its first appearance on KRLA, the interviews totaled more than 100, and the series clocked in at 55 hours." John worked briefly on "The Credibility Gap" but concentrated on his "Chronicles" commitment. In 1971 he joined Gene Autry's KSFO-San Francisco and spent most of the decade producing a 24-hour blockbuster series on the 1940s and working as an evening jock. "After KSFO I retired from the business in 1978 and came home to Quanah to be with my parents during a difficult time. At the same time, I began writing a long-planned comic novel about broadcasting." The book was never published and in 1985 John returned to radio at KRBE-Houston. "In '87 after my mother's death, I came back to Quanah intending to sell the family home, then ended up settling in." During the 1990s, John was producing documentaries that included "Christmas Quanah" and "The History of Quanah" for the Chamber of Commerce.
