StillLurking, we all have our own experiences and thank you for sharing yours!  By being open and sharing your experiences it will help others connect with you and could lead to friendships.

What kind of radio station did you work for?

Thank you for asking!  I don't want to hi-jack this thread, but there is an (I hope interesting) story behind that: 

I worked as an engineer for an old-time radio show on WNIB 97.1 FM.  The call letters stood for “Northern Illinois Broadcasting,” but we fans say it means “We Need It Back.”

It was a classical music station built, owned, and operated from 1955 to 2001 by Bill and Sonia Florian, who were cool to work for.  (Mr. Florian had a huge beard and rode a BMW motorcycle - not the type you’d associate with classical music.)  They loved animals, and there were a few dogs and a bunch of cats that wandered around the station.  Occasionally you’d hear a meow or bark in the background over the air as the announcer spoke!

Anyway, they also played a few nostalgia shows, including “Those Were the Days,” four hours of old radio drama and comedy hosted by Chuck Schaden (another great guy to work for) every weekend.  I met him while interning at the Museum of Broadcast Communications archives, which is where his show was broadcast from, live in an open studio where all were welcome to visit and watch.  I started by answering phones and taking merchandise orders, then learned the board to be a substitute engineer.  When his old engineer left for college, I was offered the job.  I was there from 1996 to 2002.

Eventually, the Florians retired and sold the station to Bonneville Broadcasting, and of course the new owners out in Utah knew what Chicago wanted better than us who live here, so they immediately changed the format to “classic rock” and the call letters to WDRV, the Drive (said in low, growly voice, like you’re imitating Batman).  “Those Were the Days” and I moved to WDCB, the College of DuPage radio station.  The new station was too far, so I had to bow out after about a year.  But it was so much fun while it lasted!

I promise I won’t always be this long-winded.  But I thought it was a good story, so I told the whole thing.  Thank you for your patience.

Thanks Tyler.  They're still pricey, but that does cut down on shipping.  I'll most likely order through Amazon next time.

Welcome James!
That's a great look on you.  Give it 30 days, and I think you will be ready to keep it that way for good.  O0

What is your review on the Moto?[/quote]
I really like it.  I have less missed spots with it vs my ATX since it has the roller ball and its more maneuverable, so I can shave at different angles and get those hard to hit spots.

This is probably a joke of some kind?  It looks like it is temporary.

Had the same thought.
I hope for his sake.
