Early Television Museum
The WGSF website has lost most of its links and images. We have retrieved as much as possible of the site and have preserved it here. We wiill continue to attemp to restore the pictures that are missing. We have removed inactive links, and made some minor edits to the site.
These web pages comprise an on-going endeavor to compile a history of the WGSF Television station, utilizing the internet to store data from the files of the former PBS station, including correspondence, pictures, program schedules, and other memorabilia. Fortunately, many of the documents from WGSF have been retained, along with some items of equipment. I am especially interested in including memories and insights from people who participated in this community television experience. Contributions and comments are welcome.
Hopefully, these web pages will develop into a compilation of these resources with memories and insights from people who participated in the community television experience. If you were involved in some way with the TV station , as an Administrator, Employee, Student Staffer, Volunteer, or in the Community Support groups, please Help Preserve the Legacy of WGSF.
Check through the topics already started. Encourage others to become involved, and become contributers to this project.
Three on-line utilities are available to simplify the exchange of information:
1. Direct e-mail - to Leland Hubbell, WGSF Project Manager and web site Administrator: Leland Hubbell, Admin
2. Discussion e-mail Listserver - This Listserver is provided for general discussion between List members, including announcements, commentary, and questions. E-mails submitted to the Listserver are distributed to all registered participants via email.
More information about the Listserver is located <HERE>
3. WGSF Blog - To contribute specifically to any of the topics open for discussion. More information about 'Blogging' is located < HERE >

E-mail can be distributed to lists of people as well as to individuals. A shared distribution list can be managed by using an e-mail reflector.
Rather than sending e-mail to a group list in your personal computer address book, requiring many names in the address line, one email is sent to the list server - a small program that automatically redistributes e-mail to names on a mailing list. (Similar to that of the Yahoo! Groups account)
When you receive an e-mail from the WGSF Discussion List, you will see only your name in the "To:" line, not that of everyone else on the mailing list.
(The subscribers list is only available to the list members.)
You use your current e-mail address to subscribe, and messages will be sent to your regular mail account.
Access to the list functions requires a password to provide security and exclude 'spammers.'
You can choose to receive e-mails as they are posted, or as a collection (batched) in one mailing, called a DIGEST.
Subscribe (or modify your subscription) by filling out the form for the WGSF e-mail list < HERE >
You will be sent an email requesting confirmation, to prevent
others from gratuitously subscribing you.
The list server will automatically add your name and distribute future e-mail postings to every subscriber.
(Requests to subscribe and unsubscribe are sent to a special address so that all subscribers do not see these requests.)
To post a message to all the list members, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the WGSFtelevision Archives

You can, however, submit posts without registering. All posts are edited and 'published' by the Blog Administrator.

The Blog Administrator selects and posts topics in various Categories. Here are a few that are listed in the Sidebar on the blog page:
A previous effort to consolidate WGSF data, photographs and an interchange of information exists at http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/WGSF_TV/
It has served well for a time, but requires a YAHOO! subscription/membership to access most of the site. It is hoped that this more open web location will encourage more people to become involved, and provide researchers easier access to the WGSF story.
The WGSF Discussion Listserver replaces the inter-communication/e-mail distribution functions of the Yahoo! site.
The Yahoo Groups site will remain available, but as a secondary site only.
