COB & Janeen With Ira Joe, 1987

Joe Fisher was the weatherman for Channel 12 for a number of years, and he also had his own morning talk show.

There’s IJF at right with Denny Janson (L) and Nick Clooney. Yes, George’s dad.

55KRC’s Desperate & Dateless

55KRC and Q were in the same space on the 1st floor until the winter of 1980-1981 or so when we moved upstairs. Alan Browning did this show every Friday night, and it made for great radio. I remember this studio very well- and one of those studio digital clocks is on my desk right now. One night, someone (Phillips I think) exploded some fireworks in the men’s room, blowing the urinal off the wall as I recall. The smell of raw sewage permeated the first floor during Alan’s show. Never saw that on WKRP, I bet.
