35 years ago tonight, I began a very fun radio adventure in Fort Dodge, Iowa. “The Minnesota Maniac” took to the nighttime airwaves on Z94, KKEZ. I still can’t believe I got away with some of the stuff I did on-the-air! Thank you, Jim Davis, for believing in that 22-year-old kid enough to hire him and turn him loose at night across 30+ counties!
Thanks and credits to Calvin Bierman for taking this photo of the KKEZ air studio. Just a few weeks before I arrived, Cal left Fort Dodge to become the newest air personality on KEZT-FM 104.1 in neighboring Ames/Des Moines. This is exactly how it looked when I first walked in and sat down in the air chair.
