A door code that doesn't
work can strike fear in the heart of a radio station employee. The
reason? You can always tell when someone has been fired at a radio
station because the door code doesn't work anymore. Radio stations
NEVER change door codes unless they fire someone. The changing of
the door code almost always precedes the memo about someone being
let go to pursue "other Interests". Many of us in the business
consider a functioning door code proof of continued employment.

The air staff loves the AEs when they come through with the goods... other than that... they're still perceived as a bunch of lounge lizards and slime balls who would sell their Granny into slavery without blinking an eye.
