John Sadowski Tribute. CLICK HERE
Updated: Mar 1, 2022
John Sadowski long time Looney Tunes employee passed away this week.
John worked for Polygram Records back in the day for years and then went over to Universal Music. Thats where I first met John. John became our Universal sales rep. Looney Tunes would purchase music directly from Universal and he would help us make those decisions. I remember the FIRST day we did an order together. I was looking at the new releases and John says to me "You don't want that piece...that band stinks" LOL. Now mind you it was his job to try and sell me as much music as possible. John had an incredible knowledge of music. I realized in 5 minutes that I liked him right away. THAT WAS THE DAY WE BECAME FRIENDS. John stayed our sales rep for many years. We would do our order in 10 minutes and then spend an hour talking about concerts and music. We enjoyed going to dinner and seeing tons of shows together. Years later Universal made some cut backs and John left the company. John would come to the store and we would have lunch and talk music. I asked him one day if he wanted to help us out. He said sure. AND THAT WAS THE DAY JOHN BECAME FAMILY. He was very happy coming in and talking about music to all the customers and friends. John always had a smile on his face. If you were working with John, you knew you would have a fun day. For many many years John has been a fixture at our store. His smile, his laugh, his funny dirty jokes could make your day. We loved him dearly. Our store will never be the same. We hope all of you will join us in sending our deepest condolences to Johns family during this very difficult time. There are no services at this time. The family is doing something private, however, in the Spring, there will be a Celebration of Johns Life, Of course we will share the information when it is given. We look forward to that day when we will all raise a glass and talk about the wonderful life this incredible man lived.
There will never be a day in my life that I don't think of John. I loved him very very much.
We have decided to start a music scholarship in his honor. We will have more details on that very soon. It is our way of ensuring Johns legacy and love of music will live on.
Let's all keep a little John in our hearts.
Karl, Jamie, Karl Sr, John R, Tom, Steve and the entire Looney Tunes Family.
