THE PHYSICAL COLLECTION IN STORAGE

back to the 1940's. We have over 100 of these shows and the turntables to

hope to repair them soon. Meanwhile, we have contacts in the area who are
putting some discs on cassette. We plan to eventually transfer these to

which was donated by board member Noah Robert (Row-BEAR).
We managed to save FOUR 1-inch Video recorders and one-and-a-half TWO-inch
machines, a film chain and editing equipment when a TV station was throwing

was sold and upgrading to digital equipment, but somebody beat us to them.
We did take pictures of the studios and DJ Bob "Bo-Mid" Middleton.
We were given a console and monitoring meters from WADU when it was sold/leased.

Francis "Jake" Jacobs (see WWL Page 2) donated a
turntable, reel-to-reel tape recorder and several microphones. We hope
to get copies of a lot of his memroribilia from his family.
