We were working out in the barn today, throwing away old stuff, straightening out a few things. After I hung an old sign we realized there's a bit of a shrine to Fisher out there. It wasn't intended that way. It just happened.
In light of this week's announcement that the last part of the once proud company has been sold, it seems appropriate.
That old Fisher feeds sign was something my sister and brother-in-law found. It's been out there for a long time but never nailed up so we could see it. Now it hangs proudly right above those stately old doors with round windows. Those used to be in the radio studio in the old KOMO building at the corner of Fourth and Denny. One went into the news booth, the other to the control room. Some very talented and famous folks passed through them over the many years they were in service. Proud to say I got to work there.
So, to all my old Fisher friends, here's to some fond memories of a great company that will soon be forgotten. Wish it wasn't so.
