Roger Silverberg, Class of 1974, reminisces:
One of my lasting memories from my 4 year tenure at WDFM was one wee hours air shift when, alone in the studio, I put on one of those go-to sides that were nice to have at the ready for when nature called. About 17 minutes was good enough. In fact it was probably enough time to make the mad dash from the third floor of Sparks Building to dash down the mall to the NCD for a cup of coffee. I did that once and saw that, upon my return, the record was skipping. I promptly cued up another track, and settled in. I know that there are at least a few peeps tuning in at 3:30 in the morning. One of those peeps was the Station Manager, Pat Richards. I had the cans on when Pat appeared from behind, scaring the crap out of me. Apparently he got down to the studio in the time I was gone but laid in wait for me to return. I swear, I don’t think Pat ever slept.
