DJ&1/2, 40 minutes

For April Fool's Day, WCDB staged a format change to Satellite Oldies, citing a total loss of all funding. There had been some concerns about SUNY's budget that spring, so the assertion that funding was cut was reasonably believable. During the broadcast there were a lot of calls but we didn't answer the phones. At 40 minutes in, we couldn't take the oldies anymore and cop to the stunt. I do remember one caller from later on that day who said she was "so scared that WCDB might be gone."
