Tyler, Texas is a lovely city east of Dallas…it’s home to the famous Rose Festival. And now it’s home to promo pro ANDY SCHWABE, who is unpacking boxes this Memorial Day weekend. He’s relocated and about to embark on a new adventure job-wise when he begins at Neptune, a company providing platforms and content for schools, universities, water parks, etc. It’s a super company full of former TV types, again proving there is a good life after the day to day grind of TV. Andy had been in Tucson, which is a long distance from his adorable daughters. Tyler is much closer…another win. To ice the cupcake, he’s going to have dinner with WBAL former promo pro KERRY RICHARDS. Small world…yes. And a happy one. Well Dunne! Andy.
This Sunday, former WFAA and Waco promo pro BILL CASTELLO is getting married! More info on that after the event, but do think good thoughts on Sunday for him.
JOHN DUNNE served in WW2….he was the guy who built bridges for the troops to go over then blow them up. He was already in France on D-Day (think Private Ryan) and liberated Rome, Paris, Berlin…and Bergen Belsen. He survived Monte Casino, served in North Africa and had R&R in Casablanca. His feet froze and were saved by a British MD. He had a funny scar on his head where a bullet grazed it. He was one of the first to come back having racked up many points. He seldom if ever talked about it. As the World War 2 vets leave us, let’s all make sure we give thanks to the literal army of men who were honestly the greatest generation.
Think About This: “All you have to do is hold your first soldier who is dying in your arms, and have that terribly futile feeling that I can’t do anything about it… Then you understand the horror of war.” ~ Norman Schwarzkopf
