On this week’s show we celebrated the second anniversary of Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge on Radio Fairfax with a show dedicated to the Doctor’s canonical wife, the beauteous and talented Elinor, who is responsible for clueing me in to the possibility of broadcasting on this station in 2009 when she saw an ad in a local newspaper for radio DJ and training opportunities at Fairfax Public Access in northern Virginia.
