The Doxie scanner used to create this digital copy of a musty clipping.



Here is the story of a “platter-spinner” and his telephones. Several inaccuracies in this spring 1971 Seattle Times Vic Stredicke column. I never roomed with Gary Shannon in Bellingham; got married six months after I arrived at KJR and didn’t do much “plinking of pebbles” in Puget Sound. But I was on the technology edge in the early ’70s. I did have a telephone in my Triumph sports car.
