From Jackie Liu:
Kendall and I worked our first shift together at KCRW and we instantly became best friends … because we argued about Katy Perry vs Beyonce. Kendall and I obviously shared our passion about KCRW when we volunteered for DJ shifts, events, or whatever it may have been, but ultimately Kendall is a thoughtful and genuine friend. Though we shared our Pop Diva differences, I’m lucky to have met such a great person…. PS he’s hilarious, so if you ever meet him, talk to him cause your life will be better. hehe
