It was a Sunday afternoon, at my weekend gig at KDWB. It was 5PM, and I was back at the pop machine. Joe Hansen was grabbing a coke.
“So, ah, the boss fired one of our board ops”, he said, in his typical indoor voice, which was loud enough to shush R. Lee Ermey.
It clicked. “S0 – they’re hiring someone to replace him?”, I asked.
They were. Joe told me to contact Leighton Peck, the boss at K63 – KDWB-AM, once a storied Top40 AM station from the glory days of rock and roll radio – and let him know I was interested.
Tomorrow. For sure.
