Human checkers game at the mall, everybody on 'the board', and one of the players' grandmother dropped dead while I was less than ten feet away, live on the air. E-mail me your best line. Maybe I haven't heard them all."

KVTA [Ventura CA] 1998-2006
Now: Pat says (10/09), "I work for Verizon in Oxnard, California." Favorite story, "April 1977: WKNR, Battle Creek MI, on the 7th floor of an 8-floor bank building when the weather wire went crazy. A tornado touches down right outside Battle Creek. I look out the window and can see the tornado coming. I record an announcement that a tornado is spotted headed downtown and for people to take cover. I run down the stairs, grab the security guard (poor guy was 80 something years old), thought he was gonna have a heart attack. I dragged him down to the basement to find the door locked. Sounded like a frieght train going by. Luckily, no major damage but of course it hits a trailer park on the outskirts of town."

Now: Mornings at Talk KFGO, Fargo, North Dakota. Tom says, "A new contract will take me down this road to 2005. At that point, I will have spent 50 years in this wild radio business (26 years doing mornings). I do believe that's enough. Our ratings the past 18 years have been a complete domination of the market in the morning. The station has also won four Edward R. Murrow awards, two Peabody awards and two years ago was named the #1 News-Talk station in the country beating out WFAN. Not bad for Fargo."
