Audio Show Link: Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #381 – Week 12/3/14

Back from a wonderful trip to Wisconsin where it was cold and snowy and no one robbed my house after declaring I’d be out for a few days over the interweb.  I wasn’t too surprised to learn that there were not a lot of articles out there but some I enjoy commenting on. If you’re like me and wonder how some of this ends online please feel free to comment. Those are some of the best items to read.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #377 – Week 10/29/14

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #377 – Week 10/29/14

erspmkThe only thing I wish about today’s show is that there were no accidents in any of the articles.  I would love it if we could get to a week where all is balanced in the inter-web space when it comes to elevators, escalators and moving walkways. It would look similar to this one, except for the elevator fall that happened at Beaver Stadium and the important message regarding riding escalators correctly.  A guy can dream can’t he?

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #375 – Week 10/08/14

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #375 – Week 10/08/14

Yippee the internet is working again. I’m telling you, what would we do without it? Read the paper? Talk to one another in person? Make a phone call? I honestly think all of those are good things. I kept some articles from last week’s show notes just to comment on them. So if you’re seeing them again it’s for a reason and you’re not going crazy. It was nice to see everyone at the Chicago Elevator Association meeting last week, especially some friends from out of town who were in the area attending the ASME Elevator Code meetings. Special thanks go out to John Rearick, James Herrity as well as his wife Colleen who I had the pleasure of having dinner with as well as the all of those who sit on code committees to help make our industry safer. Your work does not go unnoticed.
