The Mel Klawansky Collection

Who is this man, you ask? This is Mel Klawansky. Mel was a former engineer at WFIL during it's heyday. That's even where he met his lovely wife, Joyce, who was a WFIL "Boss Chick". How many guys would have loved to marry a Boss Chick?? After leaving WFIL, Mel had many jobs, including working at WCAU-TV, in central control, and at PAX TV 61. which became ION in 2005. Mel retired in 2016. 

He was kind enough to share some of his large Collection Of  WFIL memorabilia with us.

In addition to what you see here, Mel has a huge collection of scrapbooks, that were originally put together by WFIL office worker Carol Harris, as well as bumper stickers, keychains, the original "Fun-in-the-sun" kit, and even rare slides, that were used as test shots for one of WFIL's Album covers. Indeed, "Famous 56" lives on with Mel's fine collection. Thanks for sharing with Us!
