Notes: The Doctor is in. John, a surgeon from the Gold Coast, is affectionately known as chopchop on the pinball scene. As a keen player and collector, it's also difficult not to hear his name pop up here and there if you are a keen enthusiast - he has now co-hosted the long running Pinball Podcast with Don and Jeff, and you can hear his name dropped on other pinball podcasts around the globe including the latest This Flippin’ Podcast. John has an infectious sense of humour and passion for the game that is a joy to witness, and the good Doctor would surely prescribe more pinball as the only cure.
