Hi Dave - Ted, anyone:
Just a quick note from the wilds of Maine from me .... Joel Dulberg .... KA2FHU living here on Megquier Island in Poland, Maine. I can't believe that almost 4 years have gone by since I stood up from the console at 60 Mintues and said that I was leaving. If you ever have the chance and wish to do so, my phone is 207 - 998 - 2663 and the mailing address is 241 Black Island Road, Oxford, ME 04270. I'd love to hear from you when you get back from vacation and at that time will fill you in on life away from the eyeball and the ticking clock. Say hi to all the guys who may remember me, especially Bob Meyers if he's still around. Looking forward to hearing from you when your time permits.

Joel Dulberg
I'm writing because my husband, Joel Aronowitz, just saw this page and knew I would be interested in it. I certainly was! You see, I was the P. A. on The Secret Storm, and remember many of the guys in your photos. However, I need to correct 2 small items.
I knew Bob Myhrum - and the correct spelling of his name. He was the main director on Secret Storm. Unfortunately, he died about 5 years ago. And since I started working at CBS (on Captain Kangaroo) in 1967, and didn't start working on Secret Storm until around 1970, and I remember the shirt he was wearing, and many other guys who looked exactly like their photos - except perhaps Dave Payne - who looked even better in that picture than he did in person, if that's possible.
There were a lot of guys who helped me along the way, especially on Storm.
Just to mention a few: Tony Ancona, Dave Payne, Elliot Gordon, John Kemp,
"Snooks" O'Brien, Dick Ouderkirk, Charles Grenier, Bill Greenfield, Andre St. Laurent, Hal Schutzman, and many, many more.
It might seem a bit strange that I speak of Joel Aronowitz as my husband.
I first met Joel as his replacement A.D. on The Edge of Night. back in 1973 when the show was still broadcast live.
In 1975 CBS transferred me to CBS-TV in Los Angeles. And by 1980, I was one of the directors on Days of Our Lives (that station shall remain unnamed).
And now, just to bring anyone who's interested up to date, Joel and I were reacquainted when he came out to do the Rose Bowl Parade in 2002.
His wife of 38 years, Linda, had died the previous September. And the rest is history.
We are now both retired, living in Los Angeles, and are so thankful for each and every day --- as well as the fond memories we share of CBS.
I might even have a photo or two that might interest you.
Joel loves coming to this site and keeping up with our past.
So, from both of us, thank you very much.
Susan Orlikoff (the name I had while in N. Y. Susan Orlikoff Simon, when I first got married; and Susan Orlikoff Simon, even though I'm married to Joel Aronowitz.
You see, even though my first marriage didn't work out - I liked my initials (SOS).

There was a Joe O'Brien who was the announcer on a few game shows in the late 40's/early 50's (Messing Prize Party and Anyone Can Win). I wonder if this is the same person?

Joe O'Brien, 90, Radio Disc Jockey, Dies
Mass., July 26 (AP) - Joe O'Brien, a disc jockey who was one of the WMCA Good Guys on WMCA Radio in New York City, was killed in a car crash this weekend in this town in the Berkshire Hills. He was 90 and lived in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
Mr. O'Brien was pronounced dead on Sunday at a hospital in Pittsfield after his car collided with another at an intersection in Lenox, the police said.
Two passengers were not injured.
Yonkers native, Mr. O'Brien began his career in 1935 when he got his first radio job with WMCA-AM in New York City.
He worked at the station for 34 years and became one of the Good Guys team of disc jockeys in the late 1960's. They played Top 40 hits and became nearly as popular as the music they played.
They had the same clean-cut hairstyles, wore matching suits and worked together at record hops and personal appearances. They also sang as a group and released an album. During that time, Mr. O'Brien was the No. 1 morning man in
New York City.
In 1970 he left for WNBC-AM, where he handled morning duties until he was replaced by Don Imus in 1972. Mr. O'Brien then went to WHUD in Peekskill, N.Y. He retired in 1986, but continued to do weekend specials for WHUD until 2000.

Through the years I was probably the closest one to Chic. He treated me like the son he never had. I worked as his audio assist for all golf tournements for 4years and later took the reins of the second audio position. He was a great mentor to me and to many other audio "upcomers." I must say he was one of the best and should also be remembered for taking time off without pay and with a small grant from CBS to help build a television station for the Navaho Indians in Arizona. Chic was always inovative and looking for new and better ways to improve his performance for CBS and all technicians. Chic left behind 3 Daughters, who reside in California. Chic Was the Golden age of television. Arrivaderci My friend and may God welcome you with open arms. We will all miss you.

To all!
There is a pause in the information to the page while our very deserving WEBMASTER Dave Minott takes a brief respite from his many responsibilities for a vacation. I am sure he will return with oodles of pictures for all of us to share.
In the mean time you can send all your data or pictures to Ted Perzeszty at He too can install some of them on the page. So, keep enjoying your summer of fun but let's hear from you. Send in those photos and vignettes of our past so that we might all share the glories of those days-gone-by.

Stay healthy,
Tony Cucurullo
