What a pleasure to hear it told "like it is"! I'm referring to the insightful and enjoyable interview with George Putnam, ("I Broadcast in My Spare Time," July 21).
I remember sitting (probably too close!) to our tiny Emerson TV and listening intently to the dulcet tones of newscasters such as Putnam and Baxter Ward. And now I really miss them. These guys were no-nonsense reporters .
