dwayne-hickman-thenDwayne Hickman starred as Dobie Gillis for four years on CBS TV [KIRO 7] before the show went into reruns [KOMO 4 originally, later years on KTNT 11]. After Dobie, Hickman appeared in a pilot for a failed network series “Hooray For Love” filmed on a houseboat on Seattle’s Lake Union and some sequences filmed on the UW campus. The program co-starred actress Yvonne Craig and featured Max Baer Jr., who was later to be Jethro Bodine in the CBS series “The Beverly Hillbillies.” Portions of the program were filmed with the cooperation of KOMO TV.

Apps NOT Pages

I’m not an ‘early adoptor’ {noun; a person who starts using a product or technology as soon as it becomes available} in any sense of the term. Now that I have “upgraded” to Windows 8.1 [hate it], I have had to learn to navigate a strange new maze. As I go, I find that I cannot resist and will be assimilated. So, to make things easier, I am downloading apps to get me where I want to go, faster. To start, I am exploring various TV news apps. Here is what I learned to set up today in Windows 8.1 school.

If apps are not the answer, then possibly shortcuts to the pages that stream.

The Northwest Hall of Radio History

Radio history
Dear friend of radio history:

As you know, we are planning radio history exhibits at The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at WSU Pullman and development of an online radio history resource. The Northwest Hall of Radio History needs to identify artifacts, photographs, recordings and ephemera that can help tell the story of radio in the Evergreen State.

With this in mind, we are reaching out to people like you who have a connection to Washington radio. We would like to know what kinds of things are out there that you may be willing to loan or donate to the Hall of Radio. Items of special interest include:

Microphones, turntables and other studio broadcasting equipment
Mic flags from Northwest radio stations
Photographs of radio people, stations, events, transmitters, etc.
Recordings of broadcasts on transcription, tape, etc.
Promotional printed materials, station documents, business papers, fan mail, etc.
And other items that you believe should be included in a radio history museum.

Please send an email describing what you have to Feliks Banel, Hall of Radio curator, at:

If you know of radio artifacts that may belong to someone who is not on our email list, please forward this email and add them at the “Subscribe A Friend” link below. As we assemble an inventory of artifacts held by radio people around the state, this list will become a priceless resource for design of the Pullman exhibit, future traveling exhibits and the Hall of Radio online presence.

Also, if you haven’t yet visited the Hall of Radio Facebook page, please “LIKE” us and check out our weekly features about Northwest radio history: Donated materials, including those you provide, will be featured on the Facebook page.
