When I was at WMUA, we had no air conditioning (though they do in the 
present studios).  We had large windows that we could open.  I remember, 
the year I was there for the summer, a couple of people fooling around, 
one in the news studio, one in the control room, while I went from one 
window to the other, yelling "Kawabonga" at whichever mike was open.

And, of course, with radio, you don't have to worry about wearing a tie.  
Or even a shirt.
