Merry Christmas to Me
A big part of my radio years was a big microphone. This is the story of the Electro Voice model DO 56 L.
WARM had a great engineer, Pat Castellani. He knew the value of quality sound, and he also sought to make my life a little easier. The "L" in DO 56 L stands for "long." When you are chasing politicians and perpetrators (sometimes one in the same), the extra few inches means a lot. You can get the mic closer, past the other radio and TV types. It didn't hurt that I had a WARM logo on top of the mic that was the size of a barn door. Pat ordered one for me, and it was worth its weight in gold.
To make a long story short, I was recently feeling nostalgic, and I missed my DO 56 L. I found one for sale on the internet, and I bought it as an early Christmas present to myself.
I don't know what I'll do with it. It's just nice to have in my collection of broadcasting stuff.
