Wow, I was lucky to work with 14 of the 24 people in some capacity.  I was and am so lucky to have had a door key for all these years.  My first time in the building, hanging out, was around 1978.   When I added that up to 37 years I had to double check it on a calculator .  My first employment in the building was in 1981, and on and off since then .

Of course the other observance is 24 on air people. Who these days can even begin to imagine staff sizes like that.

In all seriousness though, I could easily get past 24 at NT1010 fairly quickly.  Those 24 then and now included a bunch of news people as well as the dee-jays.  But a news/talk station isn't the norm, that's for sure.
