1.) WDNG is a fictional radio station out of Spokane, WA where the DJ's perform live on the air instead of broadcasting pre-recorded material. On a Thursday, two of the DJ's get together with their board-op to make a new broadcast. The intern works in the studio next door, setting up for the next show. It's very early in the morning and everyone is getting hungry.
 

2.) Guillaume de Saint Cloud was a scientist who viewed an eclipse on June 5, 1285 without the use of ocular protection. "Wherever he looked, even with his eyelids closed, he saw a persistent bright disc." (Mannoni).
