Great read, Fred. Henry was, and still is in many ways, a big part of my life. He was truly a kind soul...coupled with a maniacal and creative mind. I personally knew about most of his bad, and can still proudly say that his good outweighed it by far. Very far.

Thanks for making me think of him today.

Hope all is well with you.

Back (way back) when I was doing mornings at FM-99, Henry was my traffic reporter. His later talents had not surfaced yet, but he did enjoy being on the radio. After I left, Ron Reger went from off-air PD to morning guy with Henry as his sidekick. It didn't take long for Henry to come into his own after that.
One wondes how far he could've gone if his demons hadn't gotten the best of him.

Ed, Phil, thanks for adding some local color. I was shocked when I started searching for Henry how the world has changed in the eight years since his passing. When you Google Image him, you get the small picture we used for this blog, and 50 pictures of the actor, Benicio Del Toro, and the director, Guillermo Del Toro. Sadly, there is very little of The Bull on the world wide web. Thanks again for those memories.

Though Henry and I parted ways after 5 years, one of my saddest days was at his funeral. If you knew Henry well, his influence was indelible. I still think about Henry often, and he visits me in my dreams.

You can hear Tommy and the Bull material on my website- www.TommyGriffiths.com

Hey, Tommy, I knew I'd hear from you on this post. Your time with Henry on FM99 was a big part of the legend. Thanks for sharing, and I encourage you to check out Tommy's site.
