During that time we had about 6 or 7 board ops working at CKY-FM which featured mostly beautiful music, but we all longed to work at the AM. Hey, they played The Beach Boys man not Mancini. Sitting there with the two most powerful guys at the station, I realized that my “moment” had arrived. Time to get noticed. I told myself. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I decided to go with humor even though I was sitting with two paid professionals. Although if you I look at the picture above I was successful. Oh, how do I know that it was me that made everyone laugh you ask? That’s easy, my fiance Lana was the only one not laughing (she’d heard all my stuff many times before).The next thing I knew I was invited to attend my first jock meeting where I almost blew it. After Jim explained to us some new twists in the format he asked if there were any questions and I immediately put up my hand. Surprised, Jim asked what I wanted? I told him that I didn’t think what he was proposing would work and when he asked why I thought that I said, “Me and my friends don’t like that kinda stuff” which caused all the jocks in the room to laugh out loud. He replied, “Johns if you ever want to come to another meeting, you better learn to keep your mouth shut.”
