In 2004 I was approached by Bob Miano to supply a radio to Civil Pictures for their upcoming production: “The Gateway Arch”. I described several suggested items over the telephone, and he came by to see what I had. He settled on the bakelite Zenith from around 1947, and also a lamp he saw on my desk. The rest is history, and word is slowly spreading that I will loan items at no cost, provided they are returned in the same condition as when picked up, and that a photo of the item on set is supplied for my web site. There will of course come a time that I will charge for these props, when I retire from my real job.
