Chuck Daugherty's biggest promotion for his Detroit-based nighttime radio show, All Night Satellite, came in the form of “Moon Goon” buttons. The show, which was known for its outer space sounds and wacky jokes, quickly became popular among younger listeners in the late 1950s. The “Moon Goon” buttons, which were distributed at Daugherty's DJ dances, were collected by local teens who listened to the show and could be seen all around the city.
