stolen borrowed from John Kieswetter’s FB although I probably have it somewhere. I believe this is the first Q control room in the Taft Productions building, which for some reason I never checked out. Maybe 1974 or 75 here. My first night at Q, 5-30-80, Randy came roaring down the hallway on some motorbike. He denies this, but it happened.
If you don’t know this story, here it is. Needless to say, this chilling photo outside the Coliseum doors wasn’t a good promo image. I had just visited the Q a month prior, and would start five months later. Never seen this photo until today, and it’s been almost 39 years.
Cincinnati’s favorite music, October 16th, 1978.
I forget when this was- late 80s or early 90s. We put a “box” on top of Riverfront Coliseum, and I believe we gave clues every AM as to what was “in” it. So one morning I’m doing the Morning Show news, and I answer the newsline. “Q News.” “Hey this is (I wanna say Marty Bender or Eddie Fingers from- who- Yes95? Wink? I forget) and we’re on the roof of the Coliseum and we’re going to sneak into your box.” I say, “hold on.” I stick my head in the air studio- “Bender and Fingers on (phone line) 8791- they’re on the roof of the Coliseum.” Nice of them to promote our contest.
