Storyline

Rob and Laura are being interviewed for a magazine article primarily about Rob's professional life. The reporter, Mr. Waring, becomes more fascinated when Rob describes his job interview with Alan as "there but not really there." The story: At the time, Rob was working as a disc jockey for WOFF radio in Danville, the number two station in a two-station market. To move them to number one, station manager William Van Buren wanted Rob to do what many stations in the US were trying to do - break the new 99 hour 50 minute broadcast endurance record set by a Houston DJ. Just as the new record was done, they broadcast from a department store window for the whole world to see Rob in action. Near the end of his record attempt, a disoriented Rob learned that Alan wanted to see him for an interview that evening. Nine hours later, Rob, who needed Laura's help in getting to the interview in Chicago, was even more disoriented as he met with Alan and Mel. Written by Huggo
