    Earl “The Pearl” was a wonderfully funny man. Mike’s right: Whenever Earl laughed, so did everyone else! I worked with all of these men at WITI Fox 6. I was one of the engineers that made “Live Remotes” possible. I wish they had iPhones back in the day, so I could have recorded some of my memories. I have so Manny memories. I worked at TV6 from 1976 until 2016. Being a “behind the scene” guy, I made sure the sound and pix were good. I miss Television and the dedicated professionals that make it work.
