MEEKER I Jon Donofrio (aka Rocko) became emcee for Range Call in 2002 while he was an on-air personality at KEKB out of Grand Junction. They were a sponsoring station that year. He fell in love with Meeker and the people here and when he no longer worked for the radio station he volunteered to keep coming back to Meeker as the official emcee for Range Call. Eventually he became a member of the board and he and his wife Lennie and step-daughter Stephany came every year to assist in any way they could. We lost our well-loved Rocko in a motorcycle accident near Crawford, Colo. on July 31, 2011. This concert is dedicated to him.
