Gifts

Dan left a little present in the Radio World stocking, which due to the holidays, was not posted as timely as it should have been. But like a fruitcake, it will never get old!

This Off the Beaten Path is a collection of links as “gifts.” Gifts of knowledge ... gifts of wisdom. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Dad’s Talk
Here’s a speech from the old TV series “Dragnet.” It’s a very interesting speech which is as appropriate today as it was back in the 1960s … and probably as appropriate as it WILL be in 2050.

Broadcaster’s Desktop Resource
This is an excellent resource and hopefully bookmarked in your browser links.

RF Cafe
Another great collection of calculators, converters, and spreadsheets.

And finally ...
This is a great Christmas commercial. Some countries don’t allow TV stations to put commercials IN the programming, but at the end of every show is at least 5 to 15 minutes of nonstop commercials (this is how it was in Spain when I lived there, but understand this is not unique to that country). What you find is that advertisers (and their agencies) are pressed to create commercials where viewers are “glued to the commercial” just because they’re soooo good! This is a great commercial and really lifts your spirit ... and one really worth watching.
