Today the main control console on our Philo studio failed at about 12:55 PM, just as the Farm and Garden Show was about to begin.  Because Rich was here, he was able to cobble together a working substitute in about five minutes from parts taken from the console in Studio B.  We had hoped it was the power supply because that seemed like it might be the problem and it's a much cheaper solution.  But that isn't it.  Rich will be up late tonight (the station will be off the air after midnight) swapping parts around getting something reliable working, and we'll just have to hope we can identify what isn't working so we can order those parts.

We are very close to replacing the main console board anyway - we have some grant money set aside for it and we're hoping that the Mendocino Community Foundation comes through with another grant we seek for it.  But changing the hub of the whole system - which is what the control console really is - isn't something we can do in haste or in a day.

Meanwhile, in case you wonder why we need to make money from pledge drives, here it is.
