As far as I know Al is still around.  Last time I spoke with him he was in Peabody?I think.  

I worked with both those gents when I was fresh out of college.  This was in 1987 and stayed around with them in one form or another for years.  Learned a bunch from both.   Norm retired just a year or two after I started......then i never saw him much.   Al is a stellar gent and I will always look to him as a voice of wisdom.

Is Al Needham still around? I remember a number of conversations with him many years ago on the Saturday football scoreboard show. Always was a gentleman toward me.
