My folks are here. It’s great having them. We’re trying to show them as good a time as is possible. Would you expect different?
Every morning Helaine makes decaf coffee for them (aka – warm brown water) and real coffee for me (aka – real coffee). Over the course of a day or two that’s a large number of cups going into a large number of cups.
Am I confusing you yet?
I’m not sure where the orange WFIL cup came from, but 560 WFIL was Philadelphia’s premiere top-40 station in the 60s, and 70s. By the 80s music on AM faded. I’m not sure what WFIL’s doing today. Whatever it is would be sad to hear.
The WTNH cup has to be old just by virtue of the rectangular “8” logo. There was a time when TV stations didn’t realize viewers would watch local stations while getting ready for work or school! Our pre-Good Morning America newscasts were underfunded, understaffed and in many ways afterthoughts.
When I got the Good Morning America cup it was filled to the brim with coffee. It came from Harold, one of the GMA stagehands. It is indicative of the level of staffing and importance that show held. That was part of why I enjoyed doing GMA so much.
How many jobs still come with free coffee and someone to wrangle it? Don’t answer. Too depressing.
