My name is Cherie Fuller aka: Shocking Cherie from KNAC, Long Beach, CA. I was a volunteer at KNAC 105.5 FM (PURE ROCK) in 1987. I couldn't tell you how many times I had the pleasure of answering the request lines for Tawn because I cannot count that high (that's how many shifts I covered during the week in addition to my regular shift). It was she who first asked me "hey Cherie, are you on the payroll yet?" Me: "I wish!" Tawn: "I'm gonna tell Frank (Sands)"...lol. It is with great bittersweet sadness I write this, for I just learned of her passing a few hours ago; damn nearly 7yrs later. Talk about being behind the times. The bittersweet taste is greif coupled with very fond memories of Tawn, graced with such a strong and very kind personality, her fantastic smile & glimmering dark eyes; one in a million she certainly was "A Beauty"!!! I had wondered numerous times over the past two, nearly three decades what had happened to all of the on air talent at KNAC (Tawn being one of their best in my humble opinion) after Mr. Sands sold the station. I know that Tawn had moved onto KLSX I believe, quite possibly KLOS for a minute too (please correct me if I am wrong) but lost track after that. In closing, with regards to HepC, I am currently living with a childhood friend who also remembers Tawn and has the dreadful virus as well. He's very nonchaulant with regards to the OBVIOUS progression of his illness. He is extremely sick, thin yet a slightly distended belly and he keeps saying he's going to get some treatment yet has done nothing since I moved in a month ago. Any advice you would like to share will be received with grateful appreciation. Please send your thoughts, care, concern, suggestions, any & all links/info to email@example.com.
Respectfully with Symphathy,
Cherie A. Fuller
