In 1950, I too was a technician at CBS. My first assignment was to pull the camera cables out of the way so that no shots were missed. I was the new kid on the block so cam 3, Bob Heller, drew the short straw, er, cable. Things must have gone pretty well as I was back the following weeks eventually making the crew, where as a video engineer, I worked primarily with cameramen. I'm sure Bob had some input that helped me.
Well, Bob, you in a hospice in Key West, me in a hospice in Springfield, VA - to compare notes, my medical passports are angioplasty, emergency quadruple by-pass surgery, prostate cancer, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, slipped disk, rheumatoid arthritis... and so on, and so on !!
Oh, by the way, did I mention I also have my wife, my children, my friends, my church, my computer, and my dog. So keep the faith, Bob, I remember thee well.
