Moose Moran looks like a real "bruiser" or not. I loved disc jockey names from the 60s & 70s in Minneapolis like Bullet Bob Lang, Machine Gun Kelly McKay, Robbie Wonderbuns Sherwood, Tac Hammer, Records Ryan -- all very silly but a lot more fun. Working in radio before computers -- actually spinning records -- was challenging, although I never did if professionally.

I fondly remember KYYX, Moose Moran, Sky Walker and the others. I was bored listening to KNWR on night and decided to scroll around the dial. I came across a commercial (can't remember for what exactly) featuring cleverly spliced responses from Richard Nixon.

"So why are you here?"
"The girls"

I had never heard anything like it! What was this station?

"Tune into your radio o o o o oh...
KYYX ex ex ex ex..."

I was hooked. My friends and I became devoted listeners. Everything was right in the world! Then came that horrible day...

I know I have some of it on where did I put those old tapes?
