Just got through reading one note from Harold Deppe, which reminded me of something Harold forgot to mention. One night on the evening shift Harold and Charlie Carambelas were changing out a power supply in the power supply racks off Master Control. Harold was on the MC side of the racks and Charlie was in the power supply room lifting the bulk weight of the power supply, when he bent forward to get a better grip on the supply the top of his head hit into the supply above the one they were replacing. Charlie took Raw DC in the top of his head and out his hands. He was unconscious when Harold pulled him loose, Luckily; Grand Central had Medical help around the clock. After much excitement Charlie was revived and taken to the Hospital, and things finally calmed down, although it took a while...in those days the power supplies were very heavy high current and voltage, 600 Volts at 2 Amps or so...

I also remember a tube cabinet behind the racks in master control but that’s another story for another day...
