In May I was one of the speakers at Eco Live!, an event we co-hosted with KGO in San Francisco. As part of the event, I did an hour of live radio with Pete Wilson, afternoon radio host at KGO. Pete and I discovered we were both from Wisconsin, and he used that to really make me feel comfortable.
I was saddened to hear today that Pete had passed away due to a heart attack during hip replacement surgery. Pete was a massive golf fan (it was on 4 of the 6 monitors in the studio when I was in there for his show), and we talked about him getting his hips fixed up so he could keep up his game.
I didn't spend that long with him, but he was one of those people that one hour was enough to get a sense of the person.
