Donna, speaking of jobs coming and going....  I'm sure most of us would
*love* to hear you share about your experience at WRKO.  You started as
a "hitline operator" you said?  I remember seeing an article by you in
Billboard when you were the PD.  I know this was a tumultous time at RKO
.  How long were you there?

What was the experience like?  And how did it end?
