Firs of all Ted was the Dallas jock in middays. For some reason they let Scott Mateer do a live audition in afternoon dive. He did a lot of long controversial phone bits and barged that he was going to be the new PD. When I asked Kirk Sherwood our GM at the time if this was true he said not only is he not going to be the PD but also would not be on the air at all. Then a few days later he shows up at 6AM telling the overnight jock he was the new morning man and PD, All turned out to be true.
Before and after the transmitter fire the station was late paying us regular. Scott suddenly exited the station. The way I remember it he was in the GM's office behind closed doors arguing with our GM about the pay checks. Now Kirk the GM was a laid back person. One of those people who is you ever did get him mad it would be like a volcano and that happed when he was talking to Scott about the money situation . Suddenly Kirks door opens it it seems like Scott was ejected and that was it for him. The PD who stole the TV was Scott's replacement.
No doubt I had great stories from Q99, It was a wild place I remember Roz, but my Xwife was Roxanne doing overnights. She became very good I have more stories about this Q similar to what I have shared. It was one of the most insane stations I was with.
By the way After a few years at Q99 as the Incredibleness Thin Man I left for a while and returned as Cliff tripper the rock and roll animal at night,
I did this kind of research on WQKT in Alabama because it was an extremely fun place to work and posed questions about what happened to that questions. If you go to the Alabama board you will see stories about that station.
