I remember at least one time when Dale Dorman started his Saturday   
morning show thusly:

Over the intro to a Rolling Sones song (the title escapes me for the   
moment), Dale literally beat his chest with his fists while doing a long,   
intense Tarzan Yell.  He stopped, paused, said (in a low, deep, closely   
miked voice) "Hi Mom! I'm on the radio" and hit the post perfectly.

I remember it well, because I happened to hear it live on the radio and   
it was also captured on tape by Ken Rapoza/Jimmy Robinson.

Homer, NY is located at the intersection of Rte 81 & 90 - about 15 miles   
outside of Ithica.  Try "www.mapquest.com"
