Bob Heil Welcomes You

Seen at the recent NAMM Show by Radio World’s Publisher John Casey was this exhibit devoted to Bob Heil, of Heil Sound. For those who only know Bob for his microphones and headsets or ham radio activism, Bob is a true audio Renaissance Man. He’s one of the most important developers of modern concert equipment technology, having kitted out Psychedelic Era stadium-busting shows for The Who, The Grateful Dead and others. In addition he invented that weird throat tube box Peter Frampton made famous and he’s a top-level organ player as well. And don’t forget, he’s also in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Check out the Heil Wiki.


Just Another Day in Paradise

Keeping with our recent snow theme: Don Brintnall, corporate engineer for Ingstad Family Media, works where snow is common. Very common. He sends us this photo from a transmission site inspection in South Dakota.


Now This Is Snow!

Here’s a great pic from the Radio World photo archives of engineer Dave Adams at the Bennett Mountain site serving KTPZ(FM) in Hazelton, Idaho, in 2005. Send us your photo of yourself in your radio work environment!


Calling Out the Dogs

We spotted this one among a gallery of pix from the recent “Christmas Is for Children” Radiothon in Dallas. Three CBS Radio stations helped raise more than $1 million to benefit programs at Children’s Health, a large health care system in North Texas.

In the (Radio) Spirit of the Season

Ham Mario Filippi, N2HUN, decided to have a little radio-theme fun with his potluck contribution to the Christmas party at his place of employment. Besides having ham items, he tells Radio World that two-way radios are also an important part of his division’s work. He also insists that the gingerbread cake is his work.
