They've been on-the-air a long time. Back in 1985 the show was originally
local to Boston. I was a devoted listener then and it was fairly easy to
get on the show. When I did not get on air they would have a technical
person field my question. The free tech help was always available. Ray
and Tom, both engineering graduates from MIT, have a good science
bent. They cringe and squirm when Wolf calls. Jerry

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.
Henry David Thoreau, Journal entry, 1850.
