Dennis Erectus Needs Help


The great KOME-FM DJ Dennis Erectus has been hospitalized since having a heart attack almost two years ago, and his friends are trying to put together a collection of his great moments on the air to sell and help pay the bills.

They are asking fans to send any tapes of Dennis's old shows. Contact jamieearl@yahoo.com if you have some and can help out.

Erectus, was wild and crazier than Howard Stern in the 80s and his shows were like weird Goth plays. They were a highlight on the San Jose radio dial, and helped KOME become a nationally known station.

He was doing overnight engineering at KEZR-FM and was on his way to the station after Thanksgiving dinner, when he had a heart attack, collapsed alone, and lost oxygyn to his brain.

He is beloved in the San Jose and San Francisco radio markets.
