Sasha, a rescued German shepherd, is Turi Ryder’s studio ‘go-fur’ but refuses to wear headphones. Ryder says Sasha asks, ‘Why? I can hear a squirrel at 300 yards.’

Thank you for including my Shebops Productions studio (and Sasha, my “go-fur”) in Radio World (“Call It Home Sweet Studio,” May 18).

I would like to present my two dear friends and patient broadcast engineers mentioned in the article with copies.

On a separate note, thank you so much for mentioning the passing of Al Resnick, who was our chief engineer at WLS. He was a lovely man, and it was comforting to see him well remembered by your professional publication.
