In Billboard?s 1966, 1967 and 1968 Radio Response Ratings. Johnny was voted #1 Pop LP?s Disc Jockey. He also scored in the Jazz category as the second most influential.

In 1975, he was a TV host of KTLA-5?s Calendar show, and lent his voice as the West Coast announcer for the ABC Network.

Johnny has said ?I?d like you not to picture me as a Disc Jockey spinning a record?rather picture the singer on the stage or in a concert or cabaret. I present sounds of orchestras and singers. I don?t give dates because I don?t want to monkey with people?s memories. I?d rather deliver on anecdote than a stat?

Johnny currently hosts ?Swing Time? on KJazz 88.1 on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
