Randy Martens reminisces: "I sure miss the radio station that was my life 24 hours a day for 17 years. I never had a day that I didn't want to go to work, and all of the operators felt the same way so it was a sad day when I switched off the power."
Jan Dullack was the first female WLC operator.She recalls the surprise, "Is that a female?" reactions she received from the boat captains when they first heard her on the air.
