Friends, colleagues, and family gathered to celebrate the pioneering career of Michael Ambrosino, creator of Nova, Odyssey, and producer of many WGBH programs.
From John Darlington: The Legendary Olivia Tappan & Anna Mintz on location, "Connect With English," Newton MA. 1996ish.
From Fred Barzyk: My Mom had this vision for me. She thought it would be wonderful if I could be in show business... I announced that I would become a piano player! Only problem was we didn’t have a piano.
From Don Hallock: Dan Beach just rediscovered this image from a play by Gertrude Stein, "Yes Is For a Very Young Man." It was shot at 125 Western Ave. (and maybe directed by Fred Barzyk)
From Robert Manosky: During the late 1960s at Channel 2, we were fortunate to have Connie White and his camera to chronicle the backstage workings and the people who made those great shows. Here are a few that I was fortunate to be in.
From Nat Johnson: I was stunned to learn from my studio producer that a musical legend would be joining the band that morning: Alan Civil had played in the Beatles’ albums “Revolver” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” Holy Cow!
From Don Hallock: WGBH produced Press and People in 1959 or '60. Host Louis M. Lyons talked with important print and photo-journalists of the time, including Edward R. Murrow, about their work and philosophies.
Nat Johnson has posted his photos of Arcadio, Chris, Jon, Nell, and Jen at a ZOOM rehearsal in Studio A.
A founding member of the Juilliard String Quartet, Robert was chairman of the Brandeis music department from 1969-76, and retired from the university’s faculty in 1983. Robert’s other activities included lecturing on music in a 40-part series for WGBH-TV.
Our dear friend, and a magnificent actor.
