If you're an avid supporter of local Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS agencies, chances are he is a household name.
Wired News reporter Kevin Poulsen admiringly calls him a "King" while Xeni Jardin of BoingBoing refers to him as a "deity".
I for one am honored to call him a personal friend.
To the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department and countless fans of public safety agencies across North America, he has been a familiar and trusted source of public safety radio listening information for more than forty years.
Please join us in reading Gene Hughes' amazing story, as we extend our warmest wishes for his well-earned retirement as publisher of the popular "Police Call" radio guides.
