A Stan Gould Reminiscence


I NEVER WORKED MUCH WITH STAN, SO I DIDN'T KNOW YOU LIKE SOME OF THE OTHERS, BUT THE ONE OCCASION THAT WE DID COME TOGETHER WAS WHEN THE BOSSES, WHO KNEW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT TELEVISION OR PEOPLE , DECIDED ON A MAKEWORK PROJECT FOR THE TECHS SITTING IN THE LOUNGE. WHOMEVER WAS IN CHARGE (SO UNIMPORTANT, I DON'T REMEMBER HIS NAME) SENT US ALL TO STUDIO 41 TO CLEAN UP... NO PROBLEM, IT WAS PART OF THE JOB.
STAN WAS TOLD TO CLEAN A CAMERA. WELL, YOU FIELD GUYS PROBABLY KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING BUT FOR THE NOVICES, HE PROCEEDED TO TAKE THE CAMERA COMPLETELY APART, THE MAN SAID "CLEAN IT", I MEAN STAN COMPLETELY FIELD STRIPPED IT. NAMELESS WENT BERSERK, AND THAT WAS MY INTRODUCTION TO ONE OF THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE & HARDEST WORKERS AT CBS. THE PLEASURE WAS ALL MINE.
THANK YOU.
