Actually, that reminds me of a story about the station I alluded to earlier where the jocks had goofy names. The PD's real name was Vic Pryles but he decided he needed a sufficiently odd monicker that fit in with the Tom Foolerys and Hap Hazards, etc.
Vic's then wife had worked as a flight attendant for Bar Harbor Airlines and one of their pilots was named Penrod Rideout. Vic thought that was a perfectly suitable personna, so he adopted it. One day, when he was relating this story to a bunch of us, I asked him, since the original Penrod Rideout had been a pilot, if that was his "air name."
By the way, when Vic was PD he occasionally had to assign air names to guys based upon the jingles or name shouts that were already cut and ready to go. That's how one guy ended up with the air name "Mike Harrison" when his real name would have been pretty suitable for on-air use: Cliff Blake.
