Ok guys! All I can say is apply to [log in to unmask] which I posted in the
initial email. It really is not a good look to post almost a 'personal *
grievance*' on a list serve site. If you are interested in the job get a
more thorough description from the Human Resources department and please,
don't consider this job as a 'couple year vacation stint' .

I have 50 years experience designing, building and maintaining sound and
recording facilities. Quality control supervisor of a tape manufacturing
and high speed duplication company.
20 years of on air experience and producer of syndicated radio
programming... and a 5 year stint as member Board of Directors of a Public
Access TV Corporation.
Much like Steven Barr I dont know much on paper at 70 years old but Im still
active in analog digital production and restoration.
Yea Id like a couple year vacation stint doing something in New Zealand
involving setting up a digital library.
Still dreaming of more interesting years.
