In the fifties, Broadcast Pioneers member Neil Harvey worked at WFIL-TV, Channel 6, the Philadelphia Inquirer station. Sunday evenings he did a program called, "Neil Harvey and the News."
Of course, during those days everything was live including the commercials which were done (live) by the newscaster. Listen to Neil's story about what went wrong one day. By the way, we taped Neil's comments at our May 10, 2000 meeting.
Here's what Neil said!
