I started as a pirate and have had the heart of a pirate since 1980, even during my 25 years as a "legit" morning man. This is a great site and ALMOST makes me want to put together some old stuff and go back pirating. Especially the CFR pics because I own much of the same equipment shown in the pic from Watkins Glen (just 40 mins from my house). The only things stopping me are my various FCC licenses and other things that I need to stay employed as a broadcast engineer. Of course, I have a few FET's, some power supplies, and and old board or two laying around.......NAH!

When I was a kid my grandfather did work for WKNB TV & Radio / WRYM/ WNBC-TV & WHNB-TV/30 although he was not employed by them he was their Graphic Artist,& set builder. It is great to see that WVIT saved some of his signs displayed on your websight Also WRYM still uses the logo he design back in 1960

I'm impressed! The work done on just one station's entry is immense, and you have 70+ entries... A tremendous undertaking...
