Re: William Pierce of WCRB

Now, that you mention it, it probably WAS David
Ives! And of course we can all picture David in our
minds the way he often appeared during the Ch.
2 Auction, with that Bid! Bid! Bid! smock or whatever
one calls that bit of clothing...

I think the sign-off also used to mention that the
tranmitter was located in (Needham? Newton?) "by
arrangement with the Westinghouse Broadcasting
Company" or something like that.
