Erectus, aka Dennis Netto, was one of the radio industry’s earliest shock jocks.

All Access quotes KBAY/KEZR program director Dana Jang as saying, “I first started working with DENNIS in 1977 AT kome. He is one of the more creative air personalities I’ve ever worked with. He took mass-media and tied it into the music and the content of his show. All his friends — current and former employees — are wishing the very best in his recovery.”
