WGBH Auction with David Ives.
Six WGBH Alumni — Fred Barzyk, Michael Ambrosino, Olivia Tappan, Bruce Bordett, and David Atwood — tour the studios and offices at 125 Western Avenue, WGBH’s primary home from 1964 to 2007. Recorded in June 2006.

Brighton Update: If you’ve been following the progress of the new WGBH HQ either in person or via the Webcam on Innertube and at campaign.wgbh.org (then select Webcam), you’ll notice that the trusses for the two-story beam are now in place. This allows for the pouring of the final piece of the foundation: that of the Mugar TV Production Center.
From Fred Barzyk
It’s official. There will be a major reunion and Celebration of 125 Western Ave in 2006.
Henry Becton asked when we should do it. I promised to poll (please ask other alumni for their input) the group and find out what might be the best date. I had suggested late summer. The new studio won’t be open until November, so there would be no tour of the new unless we held off until November.
