	Some of these folks have no sense of duty apparently. I always
worried about getting up on time to sign my station on the air... and
consistently signed it on on time or early (with the appropriate power
leve). There's not many things worse than driving to work listening to the
start of your radio show while 10 miles or so from the station!!     (this
was a  pre-arranged delay in arrival due to military duties)
