After over 20 years of engineering The Personal Computer Show Stevie Debe has decided to move on after the September 14th broadcast. He will be pursuing his other interests within the entertainment industry including film, music, art and television. We will miss him but we wish him the very best. Stevie wherever you go, just remember to backup, backup, and backup! And remember WBAI when you receive your first Grammy Award.


YOU DID IT! Thanks to you and other members of our audience writing to the management of WBAI-FM and Pacifica, our cancellation has been rescinded.
