Elevator Radio Show 505 – Week 5/23/2018

This is a picture of my great uncle, Loren Jerome Gregory, aged 16 years, in Manila in October 1941. Six months later he would be walking in the Bataan Death March in April 1942, turning 17 years old that May, dying in a Japanese camp in August 1942.

First and foremost make sure on Monday, while spending time with family, you take the opportunity to share and talk about your family members and friends who died while serving our country.  Neither we nor generations to come can forget the ultimate sacrifice they gave by serving. They are the reason why we enjoy the freedoms we have today.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. For me it was really nice but busy.  By the time Monday rolled around I was pretty tired and look forward to this weekend for a little rest. I was hoping there wouldn’t be a whole lot to cover on today’s show but unfortunately there were more stories to cover that were important enough to share so here we are.

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?

Last show before I head out on vacation tomorrow. I cannot wait! Not so many news stories on the program today. Maybe everyone knows I’m headed out of town and wanted to go easy on me. What do you think of the new website? I love it! But then again, I’m a little biased. This new format is much easier on the eyes! Everyone have a great rest of the week and remember there will be no show next week as I’ll be spending time with family up in the Northwood’s of Wisconsin!  Fishing, Boating and Relaxing, I can’t wait.
