This entry will make no sense to most of you reading it. It’s all about a picture my friend Brandon Brooks sent me. He got it from Dick Standish. Brandon works at and Dick worked at KYW Radio in Philadelphia.
The picture itself was taken in 1975 by Sal DiMarco for the now defunct Philadelphia Bulletin and resides on the Temple University website.
KYW is an all-news station. For years they’ve featured the clickety click sound of teletype machines (recorded, since no one has used teletype machines in nearly 40 years). They’ve also given on-air credit to their off-air staff. Specifically:
“At the editor’s desk, Maggi Shivane.”
Hers was a name you could drop that everyone would know. Maggi Shivane was undoubtedly the best known, least known person on Philadelphia! Now she’s got a face.
