I met Bob Goldman while I was working as a video technician at a closed circuit television company in New York City. He invited me to his studio and showed me some Ampex 660 two inch video recorders. He had about five of them. He made me an offer I could not refuse.
He said if I fix two of them, he would give me all the parts to build one for myself. I accepted and that's how a 17 year old became the proud owner of a $50,000 state of the art video recorder in the early 1960s. I later went on to become a recognized video artist.
