    Mike Houston (Smokin' Joe) passed away from a heart attack yesterday. I Just posted to let you any of you guys who may care to know. Not to start any kind of debate or arguments about cb shop and all the bs that usually goes on when you mention a cb shop.



    I will say, I dealt with him once and was thinking about getting some more work done from him. But money is tight and I already have more radios then I need. You just never know when your time may be up.

    He was just up Hwy. 35, in Sweeney, TX, I think. Looked him up. Talked with him. At that time he was only doing work to new radios bought through him. Sorry to hear. He had a good rep.

    I will keep his passion for - and love of - radio close...

    The Youtube vids he provides are some of the best, if not honest - reviews and opinions from a guy that sees the world thru his own senses.

    You can't get more real than that...

    I will miss his presence...

    Sure is sad news, may he rest in peace and prayers for the family as they mourn.

    I didn't know much about him but his videos were always informative and he never belittled others as some do. Seemed like a good guy.
