    Condolences to the family and friends of DENNIS NETTO, a.k.a DENNIS ERECTUS of KOME/SAN JOSE from its "Come Radio" heyday of the 1980s. DON WEST shares, "DENNIS was an original and talented shock jock who pre-dated the notoriety of HOWARD STERN. DENNIS worked briefly in TEXAS, but SAN JOSE was his home. Even long after he left the station and KOME closed, selling its frequency to KUFX, people in the area still talk of him, and remember his remarkable style."


    NETTO suffered a heart attack on a THANKSGIVING night some years ago, which left him brain damaged. He had been in a care facility in BURLINGAME CA, and was recently transferred to CASTRO VALLEY, CA for care. He suffered a fatal heart attack at the facility on WEDNESDAY. Services are pending.

    That's my favorite DJ name. I had no idea he was in such bad shape. R.I.P. Dennis. KOME was a great station.
