This is a simple site, in the future I intend to migrate it to a WordPress site.

I enjoyed all the great things we did in the past and all the wonderful people I have known along the way. If I have not mentioned you please let me know. Molly tells everyone I am a supreme "Narcissist"  What does she know she is only a PHD with 40 years experience!

Here is one of the one of the only pictures I am aware of, of Artie Zucker (WAEZ 94.9 Miami Beach) I put this station on the air Christmas 1961. With the help of Bob Blumenkranz we were generally able to keep that RCA BTF 10D on the Air. We sure didn't like that 4cx5000 tube and socket in a 10KW transmitter. We got many bloody knuckles on that one, plus not much sleep frequently.
