On this week's show, we take a break from our usual craziness to pay tribute to Will Koch, the president of Holiday World who passed away on Sunday at the age of 48.
Will has always had a special place on this show because he was one of the first "big" guests that agreed to come on when we were first starting out back in 2005.
Back then, not many people in the amusement industry wanted to deal with "the podcast guys." But Will came on CoasterRadio.com and was funny, candid and extremely interesting.
This week, we're replaying that interview as a tribute to Will.
It's wonderful to hear him talk about the park that was his life and the creation of roller coasters that everyone knows and loves. His enthusiasm is contagious and the interview is one of our all-time favorites.
As a way to say thanks, we're donating all of the website profits for the month of June to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in his name.
Everyone here at CoasterRadio.com sends our best wishes to Holiday World and the Koch family.
