Probably not too different from my college radio graveyard shifts, ca 1991. I came to know many 20 minute LP-sides. I woke up with my head on the mixer, once. And got some call-ins I remember to this day.

I fell asleep on AM radio at about 5 am while playing a side of Star Wars, and woke up with head on the mixer *what happened?* record was run out.
I don't know what it was but I must have been really tired and nodding, which is why I put the side on, so I wouldn't have to interact with the station!

I attempted to volunteer for a station similar to this (CKOL in Campbellford). The highlight of my volunteer attempt was being kicked out of the station by one of the volunteers for "screwing with the parameters" - which consisted of me clearing a MusicMatch Jukebox playlist before I converted two songs to MP3 format.
It's the second volunteer station I've been kicked out of, after CKCU in Ottawa. I still don't know what I did to set him off - I don't know if he saw me as racist/xenophobic, but after he kicked me out of the station I told him I'd like to slug him in the forehead. I'm still banned from visiting CKCU.
I envy you people. You actually GOT on air.
Sounds like Jack Warden to me.
He's like a pioneer of livestreamers rambling about nothing online.
We had a little independent radio station in the little town near where I lived as a kid. One day the guy who ran it lost his mind, locked himself in the studio and broadcast himself ranting and raving for a few days.
"This is how they fuck you!" *playing sound of helicopters in the background* etc etc
Somewhere, someone must have recorded it...

I know a good bit about this, WHYP was a pirate radio station for a good number of years, and it used some bits like these, edited to make a new program for shortwave radio.
I thought it was a real station run like that, then found out why it as a James Brownyard memorial station, and how it was made from circulating tapes off the air.
I'm glad it's been memorialized, loopy, but wonderfully so, so much more attractive, and memorable, than the networks that own thousands of stations across the US and are totally lame.
I'd totally listen to this every day.
I completely agree, I would listen to this every day.

Listening now with this clear audio, that's Rush Limbaugh when he's 115, papers rustling and all.
