I started emailing Kendall Lewis's show on KNR when I was 13. Years later we'd host shows together at DSN and 92.3. Owe him a lot. RIP BSK.— Joe Lull (@LullOnSports) April 11, 2017

First time I worked with @TheBSKsays was the day after my 19th birthday, screening calls for his WKNR show. We argued over Jerome Harrison.— Tony Mazur (@TonyMazur) April 11, 2017
