WCWP 88.1FM and The Old WLIU 88.3FM

    I have always had the great pleasure of assisting two of Long Island's
    top radio engineers in the business: Bobby Anderson and Mike Erickson.

     Bob's station credits include Chief Engineering services at WRCN 103.9FM and WRHD AM.
    (I wish I had shots of us lowering those gigantic satellite dishes
    off the WRCN rooftop in down town Riverhead... what a hoot we had!) 

    Mike is currently working for Wheatstone Corporation.  Our friendship goes as far back as 1994,
    when Mike worked for Sports Radio 66 WFAN in New York City, and also evenings at
    WLIM AM 1580 in Patchogue.  We both had the chance to work together
    again at WNYG 1440 AM in Babylon during the "Court Trustee" period.

      Our last project took place on Thursday January 11th, 2001 at WCWP, Long Island University Radio in Brookville.  Bobby Anderson, Mike Erickson, WCWP Operations Manager Joe Manfredi and I removed the station's 15 year old on-air board from service and replaced it with a new, state
    of the art digital logic Harris Impulse console.  The project took 11 hours total, but was well worth every effort.  Enjoy the pictures!

    and finished installing the Harris Impulse console at 9:30pm.)


    The Old WLIU 88.3FM Southampton
    (Was the Flagship station for the Long Island University
    Public Radio Network of NPR stations - now owned by Peconic Public Broadcasting.)

    We are all deeply saddened to hear that our wonderful friend and engineer
    colleague Robert (Bob) Anderson passed away at home on February 13th 2016.
    RIP Bobby - From The Eastern Long Island Radio Gang!
