PERSONAL THOUGHTS . . .
I have known my dear friend, the gorgeous, brilliant, and talented former KROQ DJ, April Whitney, since high school.
I was heartbroken to learn that she, and her partner Jill, have fallen on very hard times.
They both suffer from severe, longterm, and chronic medical issues, which have lead to their current extreme financial hardship.
They are both considered officially and permanently disabled.
Excessive bureaucracy, is causing unduly long delays in their ability to collect disability insurance.
Due to chronic illness and unmanageable pain, neither of them are currently able to work.
This is why they need our help.
Sadly, since the night of the benefit fundraiser, and the filming of my interview with Rodney Bingenheimer, both of their conditions have deteriorated considerably. You can read detailed updates on their GoFundMe page.
If you feel moved to and are able to contribute, any and all contributions, large and small are deeply appreciated.
When I became aware of April and Jill’s plight, I decided to organize a benefit fundraiser.
This was made possible with the kind and generous cooperation of The F.O.C.K.R.s, RODNEY BINGENHEIMER, very special guest artists, media professionals, friends, acquaintances, and angels who have come out of the woodwork.
Everyone involved in this project has donated their services free of charge, with the goal of raising funds for April and Jill.
On behalf of April and Jill, I cannot thank all of you enough.
Peace, Love, and Rock n’ Roll,
