Glenn Beck's Radio Daze

A twenty-three-year-old Glenn Beck in 1986 as the host of Y95's Morning Zoo.

"Beck lived, ate, drank and breathed radio," says Tim Hattrick, who co-hosted the Morning Zoo with Beck. "It was impossible to talk to him about anything without reference to how to bring it into the show. I never once saw any evidence that he could turn it off. In that sense he was a one-dimensional person. But he was great at being a grandstanding, pompous idiot and shaking the brushes for attention."
