Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #398 – Week 04/29/15

ihubIt’s a prize pack give away show everyone so listen to the end of the show to find out if you’re this month’s winner! If you didn’t get a chance to listen to the interview on your local NPR radio station this weekend I’ve got the link in the show notes today. It was fun being a part of it. Also thanks to the kind comments from many of you who took the time to write me after hearing it. On a personal note to my friends in Baltimore, my heart goes out to you and your great city. It’s hard to believe the riots, not protests that are happening.  In our great country where freedom of speech is one of our many rights these acts are nothing more than criminal activities. It makes me sick just hearing about it on the news let alone watching video coverage of it.

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

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #396 – Week 04/08/15

Audio Link: Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #396 – Week 04/08/15

eesf150One fatality involving an elevator mechanic in Indiana and another injured in Texas have this week’s show one of the worst ones I’ve had to do in a while. In addition to these articles another one from NJ reported that an inspector also was injured after falling down an elevator shaft but the icing on the cake which made me sick was watching a little girl play at the top of a downward traveling escalator and being pulled over the side.  Parents, always watch your children at malls and anywhere for that matter. Never let them play around escalators or elevators they are not amusement rides. For the proper way to ride elevators and escalators visit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation at www.eesf.org.

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!
