From the playsheet it appears that this shift got cut about 15 minutes short. I’ve scrawled a note across the bottom of the sheet: “Bug fog covering so no “K” or “DC” etc.” I’m assuming that this means the studio was powered down a little early so that the University maintenance crew could put heavy plastic coverings over the equipment before they fogged the station/University Center for bugs. I can’t ever remember seeing bugs at the station, so this may have been a routine thing the campus did every time students were on break.

And Elmo & Patsy?! What was I thinking?!
