"WWOK never had any money for much of a promotion budget so I came up with the idea of giving away autographs on the air. I then put the arm on any country star that I had contact with to have some to give away. Merle Haggard was one of my victims. Probably 1977 - Ron Tatar

"Somebody got the bright idea of getting a trade out from a photo studio to have the DJ's dressed up as cowboys, and those would be the photos we would give away at remotes and concerts." - Ron "Quick Draw" Tatar
