Bob Edwards (Bob "Blade" Parker)
Bob has helped with this radio site since before it even existed. In 2003, he happened to call me asking if I had any old airchecks. It was our first conversation since 1984.
As synchronicity would have it, I had just finished copying all my airchecks to CD, using a series of borrowed reel to reel tape units. Before that, the recordings had not been heard in at least two decades.
We got together and swapped recordings. As a result of that meeting, I concluded that there was more interest in old airchecks than I had thought.
Nearly all of my original recording are on line. The main purpose for the site now is to seek out air check which have never been on the internet before. When I received something as a reel to reel tape, I rely on Bob's studio to edit the recording and to convert it to digital form.
In a time long ago, in a place not far away, I worked for Bob at KBUK in Baytown.
