Re: Quack, quack (Was Re: Neighbors, at the tone...)

Imus and his board tech, Lou Ruffino, have been together for about 12 years,
right around the time WNBC became WFAN.  Lou is extremely talented and runs a
very tight board.  Lous simply knows when to hit the effect, and does it
correctly every time.

Also, I thought that Dan Ingram, and many of the jocks at WABC in the 60's and
70's ran their own boards.  Does anyone know for sure if they did or not?
