Most people in the broadcast business know Dave Hultsman. Dave is one of my best friends, and is a valuable resource on radio history and engineering. He was the chief engineer at KLIF in Dallas during the glory days. Dave was (and IS) a super engineer that was sought out by Collins, then moved on to a great career with Continental, where he remains today.
Dave and I have shared a love for the Collins 212E console for many years. Last summer, Dave was cleaning out and called me to meet him on the side of the Interstate to receive a gift.
The gift was 2 - 212E's. He thought that I would give them a good home. Dave, I hope I have done justice to your request.
