Does anyone have any idea of when would be the best time to hear Boston John?  I am in the central time zone so there would be a hour diffrence between me and Boston. If no one knows then does anyone have any new stuff from him?

Like most air traffic controllers, I would guess that John works different shifts, depending on a number of factors.  Just keep trying!  (Sometimes people post on the forums when he's on).

How do we know his name is John? Or is that a name that someone came up with?

If you listen regularly you'll hear several of the pilots calling him John (especially Cape Air)

There was also an article about him posted somewhere on these forums, but can't remember where.  There was even a picture, as well as his name.

I've only been listening for a week, but I always seem to hear him in the late afternoons, starting maybe 2-3 PM Pacific time and well into my early evening.

Sure, just type his name into google and it is the second result: http://www.learner.org/channel/workshops/nextmove/metaphor/airtraf.html

Funny how you imagine a face to go with the voice.  I thought he was much older (or the picture is old!)

I'm as big a fan of Boston John as anyone, but I'm half expecting him to get a restraining order one of these days and say we're stalking him  grin

Is it just me or does that not sound like him at all? Perhaps there is more than one John on the tower staff?

With all due respect, it may be you.  I recognize the voice and his name (first and last) both match up.  Maybe he sounds different outside of the tower?  I know quite a few guys that have a slightly different voice on the frequency.
