I climbed the DeVivi tower in 1959 or 60. The bulb on top had burned out and I offered to replace it for $25. I was probably making 75c an hour at the time.
 
I used a safety belt like in the film and the climb up was uneventful until entering the final section which was probably 20 feet beyond any of the guy wires. At this point, the swaying became really pronounced.
 
I made it to the top and discovered that the assembly holding the bulb was hinged, heavy, and to open it, you had to stand above and lift it up and over. NO WAY !
 
I climbed back down to no payday and legs that were sore for a week. The experience was in fact worth it all.

won't be on next Saturday when JMU head to Blacksburg to take on

I hear that WJMA alum David Taylor, who works at JMU, may have had
something to do with helping Clint get the job.

If I have my dates right, Clint started working on sports at WJMA in
1979 doing color with Bill Little on Orange High football games.
Clint move up to play-by-play in about 1982 and continued until WJMA
ended high school football in 2003 at the end of the 50th year of
WJMA covering Orange High football. Clint also did basketball and
baseball coverage for WJMA.

After WJMA Clint worked for WINA on high school sports, at WKTR in
Earlysville and did at least one season of Fork Union football. I'm
sure there are things I've left out. Feel free to add further details.

Clint's real job during most of his sports jobs had been a teacher
and administrator with the Orange County Public Schools.

I was not able to locate a list of stations that carry JMU football,
but the flagship station is WSVA 550 AM in Harrisonburg. You should
be able to hear them in much of Central Virginia and it appears you
can listen on the internet via the JMU sports web site

Arthur Godfrey is largely forgotten now but he was HUGE in his time. Though my
parents were never big television watchers, when I was a kid in the late 60's
they were still talking about Arthur Godfrey.

Check out this YouTube video:

I know that the passage of time makes us wax nostalgic over the common place,
but early TV was really a different world than anything we have now.

I remember a wonderful gaff that ole Arthur made one night while
launching into a Chesterfield cigarette commercial. The script called
for "People in all walks of life have discovered the mild flavor of..."
and so forth. What he said was, "People in all forms of life have
discovered..." He stopped, began to chuckle, his audience started
laughing, and Arhur kind of lost it for a minute or so. Maybe that's in
one of those hundreds of videos.

Thanks for the suggestion. It's not called YOUTube for nothing, I
suppose.

Cavett on Godfrey

Les <grandmananer@...>
 

Those of you who read the New York Times have probably seen the
commentaries by Dick Cavett about Arthur Godfreyt. In the event you
didn't, here is the second one, I believe. For those of us in the radio
biz, Dick's comments are particularly cogent.

More of Our Man Godfrey
By DICK CAVETT

I’m glad to see how many readers/viewers liked revisiting — or
visiting for the first time — Arthur Godfrey.

He’s one more reminder of the infinite possible varieties of human
being. I never met or heard of anyone remotely like him.

The arc of his life brings to mind the old phrase “American success
story”: disintegrated family, poverty, scuffling for food and lodging,
body smashed in head-on crash, cancer survivor, and a career that
brought fame and fortune beyond his dreams. And then a kind of re-birth
in later life as an ardent and effective ecologist and conservationist
before either word was widely known.

And, ultimately, fade-out from the public mind.

Readers, last time, asked about the Julius La Rosa incident, a notorious
happening that, back then, seemed to be the hottest news subject of the
time.

Its damage threatened to bring down the Godfrey colossus, and it never
entirely went away.

There are two versions. One is that Arthur heartlessly, publicly fired a
personable young singer — a member of the Godfrey “family” —
live, on-the-air. So great was Godfrey’s size in the entertainment
world that the dramatic phrase “the nation was shocked” is no
exaggeration.

In fact, re-examining the incident, it’s hardly the unmitigated evil
it was depicted as at the time. Not only had Godfrey and La Rosa
previously talked about the young lad’s desire to move on, but the big
bosses at CBS strongly urged Arthur to handle the parting on the air.
Doing so, Arthur used the words “Julie’s swan song” and wished La
Rosa well. Listening to it now, it seems both harmless and cordial.

And yet it was treated in the press as if La Rosa had been shot dead in
a public square.

Godfrey’s later reference to Julie’s lost “humility” was a
verbal blunder that some Godfrey-hounders in the press blew up to the
size of Pearl Harbor. (In the video clip, you will see Arthur allude to
— but not refer to — “a couple of bad incidents.”)

Then there’s the anti-Semitism matter. At its most fulsome, it goes,
“Don’t you know Godfrey owned a hotel in Florida with a sign out
front that read, ‘No Dogs or Jews’?” Although purest nonsense, you
can still hear it resurrected by seniors from that era.

Unreported was the fact that although he did patronize that hotel, he
made a point of checking in with Jewish friends and cast members.

He later bought into the place and abolished the odious policy. Being
labeled an anti-Semite was a bum rap that those who knew the man say he
emphatically did not deserve. The hotel in question, The Kenilworth,
became nationally famous at the time. (I don’t know if it still exists
— renamed, perhaps, The Mel Gibson?)

The attacks on Arthur — and on other media giants over time — bring
to mind that dreary cliché about how “the press likes to build you
way up, just so they can later tear you down.”

This dumbbell notion has been around since I learned to read and has the
durability of the great pyramid at Giza. Sure there’s plenty of
schadenfreude (all four syllables please) around, but it’s not evil
press monsters who, like those envying Greek gods, like to see the
mighty tumble; it’s us. Envious us.

(Sorry. Subject for another time?)

Godfrey’s career ran its course. But it was a marathon.

Shut your eyes and just listen to his voice, sans picture. You can see
why that god-given instrument seduced a nation. He had the women of this
country (exceptions, of course ) in the palm of his hand.

Look at what he provided them. A nice, warm, friendly man in their life;
reliable and consistently there. Thoughtful and comfortable to be with.

And best of all, he spoke directly, individually and personally to them.
Not to a mass audience, but to them, right there in their home.

NYT_VideoPlayerStart({playerType:"blog",videoId:"1247468459504",adxPagename:"opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/video"});

This was Godfrey’s genius insight. For months in the hospital after
the car crash that broke nearly everything, he had only his radio as
companion. And something always seemed wrong. Why, he wondered, didn’t
it occur to someone somewhere in broadcasting to talk to him?

What was really a revolutionary insight was born as the thought: who the
hell is “ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience” supposed to
reach? And who out there feels greeted by, “Hello, everybody”? Who
feels included in “all of you out there in radio land”? Had it never
occurred to anyone, he wondered, to talk only to him? Had they never
heard of the magic word “you”?

When Arthur got back to work, he launched his revolutionary notion by
saying into the microphone the simple phrase “How are you?” And a
nation of listeners felt, for the first time, “That man is talking to
me!”

My grandmother knew full well that Arthur was speaking, privately and
confidentially, to her. So did millions.

Steve Allen said that Arthur revolutionized broadcasting with that one
perception. Not entirely. Smart broadcasters like Allen and others
picked up on and emulated it; and yet it remains surprisingly unlearned.
Morning-show hosts, news anchors, eye-witless news teams and co-hosts
— whose gallery of ad-lib reactions to startling or funny items
consists of “How about that?” and “There you go” — still say,
“Hi, everybody.” Thereby, paradoxically, leaving out everybody.

The strong and priceless quality Arthur conveyed to the listener was
always referred to as “human warmth.” (Think what trouble we might
be in if Rush Limbaugh had it.)

A confession: Unfortunately, I seem only able to write with the
adrenaline produced by working right at the brink of deadline. There’s
always more to say about Arthur, but this is getting long and you have a
video to watch. At some point, do shut your eyes, and just listen to
Arthur without seeing the picture. Only by not looking (another paradox)
can you sense the full, endearing, almost magical quality of intimacy
that voice had on the listener, in that superior-to-television medium of
early radio. Particularly with the almost unbearable (as it was to
Godfrey, too) live reporting of F.D.R.’s funeral procession.

A closing note for now. Arthur had enemies. And detractors galore. And
Peter Kelley, his agent and long-buffeted survivor of the Godfrey storms
— once fired (temporarily) by Arthur — says, “All told, I liked
him and he was my friend.” And, acknowledging how difficult Arthur
could be when the Vesuvian Godfrey temper boiled up, then adds something
rare:

“Arthur never, never lied.”

Try that sometime.

Ah, yes. Now I recall cueing up the cassette recorder, trying to find a

I could attach a line from the recorder with alligator clips and feed
actualities back to the station. Those were the days....and I'm glad that

I've just read a short article on how a WTOP reporter uses his iPhone
to do field reporting. He has a $50 mic and a $5.99 multi track
editing application on his phone. He says it avoids all the old audio
gear or laptop he once had to carry. Once his has his story done, he
emails it to the station. Not only that, he can record video and take
stills for the WTOP website! All from his phone.

Contrast that with Phil Audibert's description of feeding audio with
an actuality to WJMA by phone. It's in the Extras on the WJMA video.

Here's the story on iPhone field production.

I've just read a short article on how a WTOP reporter uses his iPhone to do field reporting. He has a $50 mic and a $5.99 multi track editing application on his phone. He says it avoids all the old audio gear or laptop he once had to carry. Once his has his story done, he emails it to the station. Not only that, he can record video and take stills for the WTOP website! All from his phone.

Contrast that with Phil Audibert's description of feeding audio with an actuality to WJMA by phone. It's in the Extras on the WJMA video.

Here's the story on iPhone field production. <http://www.ntsmediaonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/ntsmoweekly_0158_082010.pdf> Is Phil Goodwin ready to move up? :-)

Clint,

If I ever find the time I'll have a virtual cart machine on the JMA
site where you can go to find old commercials, PSAs, promos, etc.
You'll click a virtual button to hear any of the old audio. Someday.
Maybe.

Ross

Ross,
What will be interesting to hear is all the sports broadcaster's
club commercials that so many different staff cut during those
years. Please no hurry.

Clint,

You beat me to it. I though you suggested both "All The Good Sports"
and "Sports Huddle", but I could be mistaken...it wouldn't be the
first time.

The suitcase of tapes is safe, but alas it's another project that has
fallen behind. For the rest of the list: Clint loaned me a large
suitcase stuffed with sports tapes covering many years. I bet the
tape contain 30+ hours of games. My intention is to copy them all to
CD. I'll get to it.

Mark, I believe you are correct that the slogan was used before I
arrived in the fall of 1977 and continued in use for a while after.
The only thing I recall using from WBZ (1030 AM) Boston was the name
of my brief sports talk show "Sports Huddle" that was on Saturday
mornings.
Clint
PS Ross any progress on the suitcase full of game tapes?

I think the "All The Good Sports" slogan was something Clint Estes
"borrowed" from WBZ, Boston. The first link on this page


I don't mean to deny Clint the credit but I think the "all the good sports"
slogan predated Clint's arrival at WJMA.
