Bill Hennessey updates us on a monthly get-together:
A very informal group of radio/TV types – named, the Bunch Of Old Broadcasters (“B.O.O.B.s”) – gathers monthly at The Arch Street Tavern in Hartford to reminisce, become drunk and disorderly, and enjoy the fantastic Hartford Jazz Orchestra, a 16-piece Big Band aggregation of top-notch musicians. Everyone is invited and many ex-TICers are attendees. Usually, the Second Monday of each Month is reserved for them. Pass the word. ‘Hope to see ya there!
All are welcome to this site to see the memorabilia, to learn about the personalities of the "good old days" and to find out what they are doing nowadays. The museum will display material of the time. Online displays will depend on what can be scanned and contributed by alumni and others.
Individuals listed on Personalities, Technicians and Support Personnel pages show what they did at WTIC, what they're doing now, and if they contributed remembrances, their name is a link. If they request it, an email link is included.
