DJ Predicts His Own Death!

Normally things that are news on Christian radio are not news much of anywhere else. It's demographics. Being a big fish in a little bowl does not make you a big fish among other fish. Frank Pastore was a former Baseball pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds and went on to become a popular Christian-radio host. So in that small bowl, he was a big fish indeed. What nobody knew was that he would be the only radio host to prophesize his own demise.

To corroborate this fact we have actual audio of his fateful program on 99.5 KKLA-FM in Los Angeles. On November 19, 2012 Pastore said the following:
"You guys know I ride a motorcycle, right? At any moment, especially with the idiot people who cross the diamond lane into my lane, without any blinkers, not that I'm angry about it, at any minute, I could be spread all over the 210." 
The quote starts at about 00:20 into the clip below:

About three hours after Pastore said those lines on air he was headed home on his motorcycle rolling down a stretch of I-210 called the Foothill Freeway in Duarte, California. There 56-year-old woman driving a Hyundai Sonata changed lanes and veered into his bike. Pastore didn't' die immediately, he lingered for almost a month, expiring of pneumonia and other complications on December 17th.
