      THE HUMAN BRAIN! I have, I kid you not, a cassette tape with a whole bunch of Lance & Stoley from...what, 1996? 1997? And on that tape, first thing, is when they touched the brain.

      And it's still funny.

      I am glad to sponsor this. Q101 went to the alternative rock format when I as a junior in H.S. Although I have lived away from Chicago for many years, whenever I came into town I know I can tune in for a Beastie Boys fix.

      @Ken Haha. Nice.

      @Brian - Hell yeah, I had the same ritual! Zoltar was one of the DJ's that was really influential as far as my musical tastes go. Everyone there contributed in their own ways though, and I wouldn't be the same without any of them. Hopefully he can cram them all into the book so we can all have a nice little memento of the people who influenced us so much.

      Awesome! Rock on JVO

      Awesome. Looking forward to it. Give Zoltar a nice little section. My Saturday night ritual was watching Forever Knight, then heading out at midnight listening to Zoltar on the way to Aftermath or Exit.
