Charlie Phillips, a retired Air Force staff sergeant was the chief (and only) engineer we had at WIDE/WYJY in Biddeford when I first arrived there in 1984.  Chas was a ham radio buff, and although he admittedly wasn't the best of on-air announcers, he wasn't the worst, either.  Gene Terwilliger self-proclaimed that title for himself. (grin)    With a roll of duct-tape and some gum, Chas would keep our mish-mash of multi-generational equipment running to keep us on the air.  
  Charlie passed away Thursday at the age of 78.  Rest easy, Chas.  Thanks for the friendship and seat-of-our-pants radio education.
