Here’s more on TC.
Tony was diagnosed with a brain tumor about (6) weeks ago and found to be terminal. He was then placed, because of declining health, into hospice care. He passed away Monday evening, June 14th, at the age of 72 years old.

Tony was employed at CBS since the days of 485 Madison Avenue (Grand Central Terminal).

With the exception of 5 years working for a bank, Tony worked at CBS until he took an early retirement back in 1998.

Tony is survived by his wife Annette, a daughter Michelle, and a son Russell; also 5 grandchildren.

Tony Castro or TC passed away last week and was buried Saturday, June 19, 2010. I believe his full last name was something like Castro-Giovanti, but I am not 100% sure of the spelling. I got this from Dianna Asadorian. Tony Vitale may have some background on TC’s time at CBS.

Tony Castro, draftsman at CBS Engineering, died last week. I do not have any details. I just got it in an email from a CBS friend. I am not sure who you would contact for details.

I think someone needs to create a central portal for all things TV & radio, with links to all of these great collections.<

Re: CBS Program Book 1937-48

From a radio only perspective, I believe Susan and David S. Siegel have come as close as anybody with their "A Resource Guide to the Golden Age of Radio: Special Collections, Bibliography and the Internet" (Book Hunter Press, 2006).

I am a PhD student at the University of Maryland's Journalism School
doing research into this program. I would like to be in touch with
anyone who remembers working on this show.

Many thanks!
