    Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a link to a show that aired on our local PBS last night. It covers more than tower clocks, but the first 10 minutes or so are about a hand full of the regions tower clocks and the pride taken in their care.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing this PBS video. It is a wonderful story about NC tower clocks and their caretakers.

    A very nice presentation. I know Leon; don't know whether the rest of the caretakers are members. BTW -- at 3:16 they show what appears to be a Howard bob, but it is installed upside down!

    Very interesting show
    I disagree with Pam Gavion from Old Salem
    It is not almost a little piece of history
    It is a little piece of history
    Looking after the Town clock makes her a part of it's history
