Art Bentley 2011: I attended DVC, enrolled in the industrial electronics program (considered the best in the State at the time). In the second year of the course (1968) the class project was to build the campus radio station - KVIK. My part of the project was to build the stereo pre-amps for audio control console (the Board). (Thanks, E. Wilson). This is when I developed a strong interest in radio broadcasting that would keep me occupied for the next 20 years.
I also played basketball at DVC and was "most improved player" my second year (1968).
I can't recall the exact time (1972?) when they came to town to film the movie "Day of the Wolves" with Richard Egan, Martha Heir, Jan Murray (funny man), Rick Jason (of TV's "Combat") and others. My experience with audio and microphones got me the job as the boom operator. Also when Rick Jason gets killed in the movie I get to fill in as the dead man in the street. I was also an ambulance attendant in the movie.
The mid 80's became even more curious for me as "the subject matter" intensified. I was then dealing with a couple of ABC government agencies, which got to be "spooky".
I am alive and well in Bisbee Arizona.
I have radio air-checks from 1982 when I was working all night on a pop-rock station WKAZ-Charleston that I can E-mail to anyone interested.
