It's been 18 years since the attacks of 9-11-01.
Every year, our listeners ask us to post the complete broadcast audio from the show that morning, so we have provided all the hours Bill was on the air below.
Bill was on the air at 5:46am local time when American Airlines flight 11 crashed into floors 93-99 of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Eerily, Handel and Rich Marotta were having a discussion about kamikaze pilots just a few minutes before. We got word about the crash just a few moments later.
