<< From the stunt file: Rutland's "Cat Country" (WJAN 94.5/WJEN 95.1
 Sunderland) fooled the local paper a couple of weeks ago when it
 brought new morning jock Don Glaze to town.  Glaze started his rutland
 career by standing on a street corner downtown with a sign that said
 "Will Work Now!"  He told reporters he had just moved to Rutland from
 Illinois after driving out to follow the woman he loved, then being
 dumped.  The newspaper ate it up, only to run a follow-up the next day
 admitting it had been duped.  One station owner claimed she knew
 nothing about it, but others at the recently-sold station told the
 Herald the whole thing had been planned out as a way to draw attention
 to WJAN/WJEN following the departure of Glaze's predecessor Willie
 Clark. >>

WHDQ(Q106) in Claremont, NH did this stunt a few years ago with the arrival 
of Jay Richards as the morning show jock replacing then PD Ken Barlow who 
went to 10-Noon.  Jay did not last long and worked at several NH stations for 
short periods of time.  
Does nayone know of what happened to Jay Richards?  I heard him on WNNH, WLNH 
just to name a few.
