ggn information systems FEEDBACK New information as of: September 19, 2002
This page is a self-serving feel good effort on my part, containing excerpts from your emails.
I just began to check out your
website. It's fantastic ! ! ! The database and photos are
It was a
real thrill to see the WDRC FM article and the photo of
my father, Franklin M. Doolittle, along with other greats
such as Allen B. DuMont, who I met more than once in my
thank you enough for your posting a picture of my
ex-boss, Everett Dillard. I worked for WASH-FM in the
late fifties, Mr. Dillard was the most congenial employer
I ever worked for.
did a very nice job on your website, and I thank you for
keeping the Yankee Network history alive.
With my interest in W1XPW
and early FM on West Peak, I was excited (radio pun not
intended) by your poster pages. It's great that websites
like yours exists (and Mr. Brouder as well) so
that younger engineers can have a heritage to appreciate
A quick note
to thank you for all the work you put into your website.
A labor of love.
One of the best websites
about radio and TV. I've researched broadcast history
since high school and this is by far the most
comprehensive source I've come across.
believe we haven't found each others' sites until now.
I am enjoying your site very
much and will return to read more tomorrow evening. I've
just about finished my dissertation: The Story of the
DuMont Network, and plan to teach broadcasting history at
the undergraduate level. At 55, I'm starting a new
career. Armstrong is also one of my heros --as a
broadcasting history "nut"--I'm glad
you included his photo.
WOW ! I
thought I had discovered all of the old radio/TV sites.
Very nicely done.
|I just spent some time wandering
around your website. I really enjoyed your classic
transmitter site photos, and coverage maps.
Especially enjoyed your section on WMTW/WHOM and the cog railroads pics.
Thanks ! I feel I just spent a day on Mount Washington.
|A link from Scott Fybush led me to
I just took a more extensive look at your website. You captured some marvelous history.
I was in the Mount Washington TV-FM building in 1961, I've been in the original WDRC-FM building as well as stood outside the "Heublein Tower" on Avon Mountain, home of WTHT-FM.
Sure glad Scott's site linked to yours.
|THANKS for your site, which I
stumbled on doing a Google search for "stratovision".
When I was a kid in the 50's, back when corporate security was pretty much a joke, it used to be possible for a teenager with a coat and tie to sneak into network headquarters in New York. My buddy and I specialized in NBC.
I ended up in radio news and am nearing my 20th anniversary with Voice of America.
|I was given your URL by a
friend of mine who is another broadcast engineer. I grew
up in New England and went to summer camp in the 60's in
New Hampshire and watched WMTW TV/FM.
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed looking over the historical stuff and well as the links.
I've already passed your site on to another bunch of friends on mine in the business.
|GREAT WEBPAGES !
I especially found the early stuff on WBZ-TV fascinating. I remember when I was about 6 and the TV tower on Soldiers Field Road blew down in hurricane Carol, and I didn't get to see cartoons for a while....hehe.
Again, a great site.
|Really enjoyed the site, especially
the old WMUR-TV poster. I remember growing up in Nashua
watching it as a kid in the 60's.
Interested in reading the old Yankee Network material, as well.
I started working in radio at WOTW (Nashua, NH).
Thanks for a great site.
Your database of older station stations is really interesting ! Great stuff !
(ED note: included a correction on a Canadian station.)
|YOUR SITE ROCKS ! ! ! ! ! !
I'm 16 years old and live just south of Boston.
Thanks, I like New England Radio and TV History.
wanted to comment on your website. As a life-long fan of radio,
I'm always looking to learn more about the beginning of the
craft, especially in New England.
You can imagine my surprise when I saw my father's name mentioned prominently - Ed Juaire.
Again, many thanks for the education ! ! !
