Tiny Tim and his ukulele. I kid you not. He had a gig somewhere local and just walked in the front door. I saw him at the front desk and yelled for them to bring him in the studio. We did a brief interview and he played Tiptoe Through The Tulips.

Back around 2000, a local strip club owner thought it would be a good idea to have a couple of the dancers come in to voice a spot. They were obviously wasted (it was early afternoon), but I had to make the most of it. After I set them up in the VO booth, one kept flashing her boobs at me through the glass, while the other pretended to "blow" her microphone. When they attempted to actually read the script they were horrible, so they finally left to go "practice their lines" somewhere and never came back.

He worked at various NM stations including WWPZ and WJML. He was a hoot!

Who is Bob Preux?
Bob Proulx, to spell it right. You had no idea what it was like getting him to be a "contemporary" DJ. Nicest guy you'd ever meet, however.
