Rover blends in with his fans -- who are almost universally young, white, and male -- like a real-life Where's Waldo?
"He's a guy's guy," says Jeff Miller, who oversees sales for 92.3.
" The collar and leash are photo-shoot props, but the anal-rape fantasy is all Rover's. He wears a ringer T, cargo shorts, and a Cubs cap to cover his thinning hair. He's the kind of guy who reminds everyone of someone they knew in high school.
His voice has a flabby quality that leads listeners to imagine him chubby. "Everyone always thinks I'm a big, fat fuck." In person, he's a skinny 28-year-old with the beginnings of a paunch, largely due to his fondness for chicken wings.
The last 3 Apollo missions (Apollo 15, Apollo 16 and Apollo 17) each carried a Rover to carry astronauts and equipment several miles from the Lunar Module.
The Apollo 14 astronauts were the last astronauts to walk the entire time they were on the moon.
To be able to work in vacuum a special fluoride based lubricant was used for the mechanical parts and the electric motors (one in each wheel hub) were enclosed in pressurized containers.
Most unmanned rovers operate in much the same way as Lunokhod 1 did.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential rock stations in America throughout its history, Owned by i Heart Media, Inc., and broadcasting a mix of active rock and hot talk, WMMS serves as the flagship station for Rover's Morning Glory, the Cleveland affiliate for The House of Hair with Dee Snider, and the home of radio personality Alan Cox.
It was here that Rover created Rover’s Morning Glory – the name itself was thought of just days before the show's premiere and is a double entendre for morning wood.
In March 2005, the show began to syndicate with rock station WAZU/Columbus.
Rover's Morning Glory is a syndicated hot talk morning radio show originating from Cleveland rock station WMMS (100.7 FM).
Hosted by radio personality Rover (Shane French), the show first began at cross-town rival WXTM (92.3 FM) in 2003, quickly becoming one of the top-rated shows in the Cleveland radio market.
