I was reading an article about Steven King and his advice for writing and then I read some of the comments and this one stuck out... "I wonder if King ever got around to writing that one particular story that he had in mind [and mentioned in an old penthouse 1981 interview],about a haunted classic rock radio station? King said rough ideas for the plot concerned a popular deejay who worked for the station gets fired and replaced by an automated machine. The deejay,deeply depressed,commits suicide. Afterwards the machine starts to act very strangely. Threatening to kill people. That really sounded like a great idea for either for a short story or even a novel." This screamed Howard to me, what do you think? Was he referring to Howard?
