Yes - I know him and he knows.  But trust me, as flattering as I'm sure it is, most controllers don't really want fan clubs.  :-)

there's another male controller at the boston tower who has a strong boston accent; usually works weekdays between 10a and 12p EDT...frequently when telling the pilot to go to departure will say, "enjoy your flight to [insert destination here] today". he also will joke around with the pilots and they seem to enjoy it, he's great.

Always entertaining to listen to Boston John, it comes through in his transmissions that he enjoys his work.

I have noticed he frequently says something that sounds like "Mocha Hi-daddy"  What does this mean?
