Duane Patterson is known to the nation as @Radioblogger or Generalissimo, Hugh Hewitt’s able and much-maligned producer.
But to a bunch of friends across the nation called The Tribbles, Duane’s a friend and great guy.
Duane informed us on his 7/27 Aftershow that the cancer, first diagnosed in 2012, and twice beaten, was back. To be precise, the Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma was back.

After the news had soaked in, the only appropriate response was a recording of encouragement, humor and well-wishes from a gaggle of Duane’s friends, many of whom are Tribbles.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Duane as he fights this thing.
