I had an INTERESTING evening last night!! I had plans to go to the SBE (Society of Broadcast Engineers) meeting in NYC. They were touring the backup transmitter site for the major NY radio stations, including Z-100 and WKTU… I had to be there at 7, so I figured if I caught the 5:02 Train from Deer Park I’d get there with PLENTY of time to spare…Well, I looked at my watch at 4:54 and BOLTED out of work! The train station is only 2/3 blocks from my work, so I decided to run as fast as I could to the station!!! I discovered how out of shape I was when I couldn’t run any more and the train doors shut! (Note I was 10 feet from the train at this point!) That’s right! If I could run for 10 more feet I would have made the train but I had used my last breath!
so I walk back to work and hop in my car. I JET to the Hicksville train station to catch a 5:30 train to realize that my coworker was looking at the morning schedule when he gave me that time! The next train wasn’t till 6:35…and it was a few minutes late on that!
So I finally get into the city at about 7:30. Walk to Times Square….catch up with my friends at about 7:40. The tour had ended, but I got to see some cool stuff anyways at the end of the tour, so it wasn’t all for nothing. Also, one of the guys there gave us a tour of his workplace…The upcoming studios for CBS 880 AM! This is a NICE studio! Scheduled to be ON-AIR next weekend, so I’m looking forward to hearing that! The evening was definitely fun! Thought I am aching now. My muscles have all caught up to me….Oh man! another Friday night home 🙂
