When I was at 'HDH one of the things I ended up doing was the staff 
announcer duties after that fateful day when the Amazing Jim Sands was 
replaced with <ack> "The Sounds of Sinatra" with Sid Marks. Instead of a 
tech to run the platters and drop in the spots they needed a staff 
announcer due to the contract.
