I call this a radio salad, because there's a little of everything here. A Murdco commercial I put together during my early days at KLSY, but the coolest thing contained in this episode: When I first started doing radio at KQOT in Yakima, I worked with Skip Tucker...who had gotten to know Ichabod Crane, who graciously agreed to critique one of my airchecks. He did, by playing it, pausing it and then jumping into it. Forever grateful.
