"79. STAGED DROPS BY A CROWD.
"Drops artificially created by a crowd being directed by a host can be very effective and amusing. They reinforce the idea of a 'station community' and remind listeners of the enthusiasm of other listeners for the station and its programs. Hosts should 'be on the lookout' for opportunities to create such drops. Likely opportunities may arise at remote broadcasts, station-sponsored gatherings, and even station-sponsored sporting events. For maximum effectiveness, please observe the following procedures:
"(a) Keep the proposed language or reaction (laughing, yelling) simple. Make sure that the crowd can be heard through the open mics at the particular function. If possible, involve the entire group within mic range so that extraneous signal will not spoil the drop.
"(b) Don't laugh over the drop."
