The Best Hair in Radio by Christopher M. Bohan
Cyril had a funny way of putting things. He liked to say “my cats are meowing” as opposed to “my dogs are barking”. He liked to have cereal for dinner and a nice piece of grilled salmon and a Caesar salad for breakfast. He once took a trip to England just so he could drive on the other side of the street. And, he liked his ice cream served warm.
No less endearing than Cyril’s certain oddities was his penchant for hair gel. He had a most impressive coif that demanded the better part of his morning to perfect. What, with the grilling of the salmon and the precision with which he set his coif, it is a miracle he was never late to the station. He had the best hair in radio.
Cyril’s hair was so nicely and firmly set that it never budged an inch even while he drove his white Mazda Miata ,with the top down, the ten miles from his home to the station. He never once went over the 25 mile an hour speed limit and he was never late for the show – Cyril’s Seventies!
