I worked in FM radio for 3 years. I worked my way up to a point that it seemed possible to get my own show, but this happened at the time a format change was already in the works, unbeknownst to staff. Shortly after, ClearChannel Broadcasting took over as many FM stations across the U.S. as they could.
Though I never got my "deeper cuts" specialty show, I did cut a one-hour demo tape of "3rd Stage with Tom Sawyer". I had an opening theme song for the show, which featured an actual recording of a space shuttle lift off count down in time with Boston's "Cool The Engines". It was a lot of work to get the timing just right. '3rd Stage' is the name of the Boston Album the song is from, and it was partly this 'flight theme' that the show was based on.
