Museum of Broadcasting
Wednesday, April 12, 2017:  Mark was a young 70 years old this day after spending a lifetime as a radio broadcast engineer. 
Standing next to a tower with an no-air light in the Lodge entry, he is resting his hand on a 1929 vintage Majestic radio. 
Nipper the RCA dog was there too along with a ribbon microphone from the 1940s.
A card from Paula was just right for the occasion.

Space Shuttle Columbia was first launched on this date in 1980.  My how time flies. 

Mark is in interesting company with an April 12th birthday.  Tiny Tim was born on this date in 1930.  David Letterman was born the same day and same year as Mark.  He is retired now.  Mark will continue working until the end of the year.

Quote of the day:    70 is just another milestone along the road of life.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
