He sits behind the glass, managing listener calls and booking very popular & sometimes crazy guests.

Merkin has now written a book about his experiences: "Behind the Glass: Stories From a Sports Radio Producer". He writes about his different encounters with celebrities, from Charles Barkley to Cubs fan Eddie Vedder!
