John Rode was one smart
guy, and a great jock as well.
Rode is a member of MENSA
International, meaning he is more intelligent that 98 per cent of the
population. The Wisconsin native put that to good use with a clever
wit that gave his shows a very erudite air. Rode jocked all over North
America, but is probably most identified with 1050 CHUM where he spent
the bulk of his career.
