Noticed the article in the Washington Post Today regarding John Thompson’s retirement, and saw there was not a mention on DCSportsfan. Wouldnt mind seeing thoughts on his leaving the airwaves. Link to article below.

He had a good show in my opinion.  He has a vast knowledge of DC sports history..especially in basketball.  His show was different. His opinions were very honest and based on his experiences...not what someone else thinks. Very well connected which was reflected in his guests.

He was not a "radio guy" which was refreshing.  I will miss the show but he had a great run.
