Please note to all who have corresponded with me over the years....

I've experienced a computer problem which has brought about the deletion of all of my e-mail files.  These include ones which website viewers have sent me.  If you have ever sent me an e-mail with information about anything you wanted to add to this site could you please resend me the e-mail thread which was a result of our correspondence.  I don't want to lose contact with you!

Latest Updates


(November 13, 2014)-Added another WDBR aircheck, from October 3, 1976 to the Area CHR History page....with yours truly as the disc jockey.  It was an early in my career effort at my ultimate radio station!

(November 15, 2014)- Updated the former Television Today to "Mid Illinois Television Today" the complete listing of local television across mid Illinois.  It includes a link to local TV listings from Yahoo TV.

(January 16, 2015)-Updated the "Mid Illinois Television Today" to include the broadcasting of the GRIT network on WICS and WICD.  Also added back the ZUUS Country Music channel as 20.2 on WICS.

(January 19, 2015)-Replaced videos which were discontinued for one reason or another by You Tube probably due to copyright challenges.

(January, 2015-Appealing a copyright challenge of my You Tube post featuring the "Real McCoys" TV series from the 1950s by SFM Entertainment.  My appeal is based on "fair use" of the opening/closing credits of the show and its use on this historical website.  Meanwhile there are dozens of other You Tube posts of "Real McCoys" on You Tube, with many postings of complete episodes of the series!

(January 25, 2015)-still no response from SFM Entertainment....
