    They're always good for the competition to goof on. I look back at my host page and cringe every time.

    Back in the Fabulous Fifties my favorite station - KTKT in Tucson - used to publish a weekly flyer ranking the popular songs of the day. On the cover were photos of their on-air staff - every one of them a short-haired male in suit and tie. Although I can't be positive this many years later I believe they also used their real names. Wolfman Jack was the first DJ I ever heard (after moving to CA) who used an alter ego.

    KYA in San Francisco also used to publish pictures of their DJ's and I believe they were similar: short haired males in suit and tie using their real names although I do remember a couple, such as Russ "The Moose" Syracuse adding a bit of color to his.

    You'd think they would be able to link a public Facebook page these days?

    After reading some of those jock profiles (back in the past, when they were actually on a radio station's website!), I realize now why my radio career never really took off. It was because of something that I had, and still have: a house! These dj profiles typically indicated that a jock spent six months in Albuquerque, six months in Phoenix, six months in Nashville (where I heard them), six months here, six months there, etc. I did not have enough "portability" to make it in radio!
