No Show 3/4/2015

erscaptI just got back to work after attending the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundations Annual General Meeting in Tampa and wanted to thank everyone who attended. Now it’s time to get caught up at work.

There were some excellent ideas and input shared and I’m excited for the foundation and the future plans for the new program development.  I’ll provide a recap on next weeks show.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #391 – Week 02/25/15


ersprIt’s the last week in February which means we’re giving away $100 cold hard cash, or at least in the form of a Visa Gift card which is almost as good as the real thing. As well we have our box filled with goodies! With this month being one of the coldest and snow filled on record for awhile let’s cross our fingers that March will be warmer and melts some of it. Next week I’ll be traveling to the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation Annual Meeting in Tampa. I’ll try to put the show out but what I’ve learned in the past is that between traveling, meetings and the end get together at the end I’m pretty tired each morning. I’ll put a post up if I have the energy to crank one out.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!

2/18/2015 – No Show Today

While Boston continues to get hammered by storms and snow it’s just plain cold here in Chicago. I’m not feeling all that great and figure my body could use some rest sleeping in so today their will be no show. Hang in there everyone. Talk to you all next week.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #390 – Week 02/11/15


ersbst It’s hard to believe that the show is approaching show number 400. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday when we started this ride and in others it feels a lot longer. Perhaps it’s the lack of sleep that I’ve been getting every Wednesday.  The lead story for this week’s program is the verdict in which an elevator mechanic was found guilty of felony assault in a woman’s injuries. I believe it’s the second time that I’m aware of that a mechanic has been charged with this. And Boston, hang in there, the snow will melt by June!
