Here's what I have (and my wife is going to have me shot, if I collect any more)in my little museum:

An original RCA BK5B ribbon mic from the KDKA studio (there was an old picture posted here a while back of Mike Levine and Jerry Lewis; can't help wondering if the mic in the pic is the same one in my display case).
*Copy of Rosey Rowswell's book, "Rosey Reflections."
*Copy of "The KDKA Family Album," which features hand signed photos of the air staff, including Rosey, Bill Hinds, Paul Shannon, Ed Schaughency, Buzz Aston and more. I think it was published to benefit the war bonds campaign.
*Plastic replica of the little cameraman on wheels, which used to appear at the beginning of KDKA TV progams.
*A 1982 3WS calendar that Doug Hoerth signed and gave to me, plus tons of Porky Chedwick related stuff (which I'm sure doesn't surprise anyone).
*A slice of the original KDKA tower in lucite, which was sold as a fundraiser for Children's Hospital.
*An original letter from Harold Arlin and an accompanying KDKA program log page from 1923.
*Although, not directly related to Pittsburgh, a genuine signed card from Guglielmo Marconi (it hangs on my wall next to the Arlin letter).
Sadly, I think my mother threw away all the bumper stickers I had from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, when they became ratty looking. I love this kind of stuff!
