I wonder if the archives will also contain the newscast on channel 7 (I can't recall whether the station was WNAC-TV or WNEV by that time) that ended with a "volcanic eruption" on Great Blue Hill? This was about the time of the Mt. St. Helen volcano that killed Harry S. Truman....no, not the president ANOTHER guy named Harry S. Truman who was old enough that his parents must have given him that name (and the period after the 'S') long before FDR chose HST as his running mate!
