MARTINELLI, Timothy (c. 1951-2014) was a disc jockey on KISL-Avalon (87.7 FM) with a show called Avalon's Hot Air (2012), Saturday nights, 7-10 p.m. His moniker was Don Timoteo:
- I love having guests, and I love playing music, because I play the music I love. When they start making music better than the Stones or Beach Boys I'll play that, but I haven't found it yet. One of the goals that I have is a network of people all across the country having a connection to Avalon. A network where we can hear reports and stories from other parts of the country, too.
Martinelli committed suicide by hanging on October 21, 2014 at his home. He was 63 years old.
