    This is memories of times long gone at WISH-TV. I was an engineer at WISH from 1955 to 1970. I saw and was involved in many of the changes. I started in the Riddick building and was part of the move to the present building. The new building was designed more for looks than for television. We made a lot of changes after moving in and I know there have been many made since.
    I am writing this on my laptop and nothing is working right so I will close.
    I was really sorry to see CBS leave.
    Best wishes in your future endeavors.
