There were four Assistant Technicians on the Studio One crew back in the early fifties, Joe Desmond, Al Vestuto, Dominick Annechiarico (er Smith), and myself. Dom was a boom pusher (as we all had been) awaiting his chance to advance. A boom man opportunity opened up when I became a video man on the crew. The TD did not recommend Dom for this job because he felt "his arms were too short to work a boom mike"! Does anyone know what happened to Dom? Only Kidding. His arms were long enough to reach the higher levels of management. P.S. Hi Sid!
