RIP, Raptorized John
 
According to Roger Lajoie's Twitter confirmation, Raptorized John, one of the most well-known caller on FAN590 and a Raptors super-fan, has passed away.

he is known among FAN590 long time listeners and hosts for his catchphrase "Yo, [the host]!". He usually called in during "Hoops" and "Prime Time Sports" call-in sections talking passionately about the Raptors and Toronto sports in general.

Here is Eric Smith's blog about him 5 years ago:
