Listeners to the programs and users of this website owe a great deal to my late, dear friend Al Calame, who passed away from natural causes recently. Having run the Spitfire CD duplication service and the old Spitfirelist.com website, Al’s efforts were essential to realizing the goal of getting all of the 30+ years of Dave Emory programs and lectures available online.
Working with no substantive financial reward, Al soldiered on, preserving the audio archives for posterity.
In addition to his essential efforts on behalf of the website and sending the programs to the stations that carried them, Al’s companionship helped me through some very stormy personal and professional waters.
One could cite no better example of citizenship than Al’s life and work. He will be fondly remembered, as well as missed. When using the materials on this site, pause to think of Al.
