Gady,

Just finished reading your last post. Very interesting to hear they are rebuilding the Broadcast Center. I left in 1973 when there was tape and film. What are they installing now? Your pictures will be most welcome.

Best regards,

While still working it's a bit hard to get to the luncheons but I will make a special effort for the next one as I live close by in Jersey.
I don't know how close you keep up to what's going on in the BC.
Right now they have almost demolished the entire BOC area and soon it will be clean and empty waiting for the new TX, Air Control and Satellite areas.
I will be taking pictures as it moves along. I have some of the demolition. I also have pictures of the building up of the MDC.
It's amazing how complex MDC is. It makes everything else look like toys. However, I think we had the most fun in the old PC rooms.
I still have the ON-AIR light from the outside of the PC rooms and it's connected to a light switch in my house.
 
I am in touch with Dave Kaplan, who is doing pretty well and enjoying his retirement.

All the best.

ATTENTION ALL CBSers that worked at GCT!

Hello,


I hope you don’t mind my emailing several of you associated with the CBS Retirees website. I’m hoping to get more information about the sign in the attached photo. Metro-North and the Transit Museum recovered this sign in the space that was occupied by CBS when renovation to the tennis courts at GCT was underway. It measures 5 ½ ft. x 17 in. and appears to be hand-painted lettering on steel. The photo may make it appear a bit warped or curved, but it is flat and straight. If you know where this sign was actually placed, have a photo of it in place or just have a best guess of where it went, we’d be most grateful. The NY Transit Museum is staging an exhibit for Grand Central’s Centennial next February and we think this artifact would help to tell CBS’ part of the GCT story. It says more about the object and the studios if we know where it belonged.


If you expect to see others at your fall luncheon, perhaps sharing this photo with other retirees would help as well.

Kind regards,

Brett Dion

SAD NEWS

My name is Kathleen Francis and I am Walter Lupinski's daughter. I just opened your letter about your fall get together and realized that I hadn't contacted you. My father passed away on June 23, 2012. He had taken a fall in the beginning of May and broken his hip. It was a downward spiral from there.


I know that he visited your website often and was very interested in the lives of his fellow retirees.

Please remember him to anyone who might have known him.

Thank you.
