Comments: This is your boy DNICE, checking in on "Mello Moods", SCN was great and I miss it a lot. At least I'll get to see some of the old faces when I move to Heidelberg, Germany this summer to take over AFN. If any of you are in my hood, feel free to drop by and say hi to a brother!

Comments: I was at CFN 1961-1963 when it went from CFN to SCN. I had the pleasure of working and partying with some of the most talented people I have ever known In my 45 years of broadcasting. Many are still close friends. I directed the opening of the Bridge of the Americas when thousands of Panamanians stormed the bridge protesting the name Thatcher Ferry Bridge, named after a CZ engineer, I think. It was later renamed. We were the military broadcasting version of "Mash". As a matter of fact we could have written the scripts.

I was married at Fort Clayton and the SCN staff secretly produced the entire wedding. What stories we have to tell.

Shortly after I arrived as a Private and as a director we got a new OIC. He was a former tank commander and very Army. It really bothered him that I. as a Private, was sometimes directing officers so he brought in an Air Force Sergeant, a terrific guy and a great friend but of limited experience. Well that didn't work out so he kept waving my time in grade and in a short time I was promoted to SP5. It became a joke when people would comment, "It's been a month and you haven't been promoted". I am pleased to have found this site and hope to hear from many of you in the future.

There are some things you NEVER forget!

Hi, Gang -- Navy Journalist Gabe Ireton here. Or, to one or two guys in the audio booth, it was "Navy Journalist Gay....Bireton"...!

Anyway, glad to see there's a move afoot to get together. But, after what we did to Avenida Central, I don't think Vegas can handle us.

Anyway, quick bio: left Navy, went to college, got into print media, dabbled in radio, retired in 1992 from Pittsburgh (PA) Post-Gazette.

I may have some ID for people in the photos.

Keep in touch!

Comments: I've meant to sign in here over the past 6 months and every time I get to this point, something interrupts me. I can't believe it's been 10 years already since I left SCN, it really doesn't seem like it. I spoke to Jeff Anderson last year. It was really good to hear from him. Unlike many people who leave SCN and never get back, I've been to Panama almost yearly since I PCS'ed. The building (as of Jan 2001) looked really lonely, and everything on Ft. Clayton looked mostly unused. I'm currently a sales manager at a Minneapolis area Chevrolet dealer. Things are going well! I'll always reflect back fondly on my time at SCN. The people I met and the job I had were outstanding! Hope to hear from those of you I knew, and I'll try my best to write back.

Name: Heather Hanson, best volunteer C.I. had!
E-mail: //////yachtgirl4aol.com/////
Comments: I was a student volunteer from August 97 to June 98. I loved working there; it got me away from high school every day. I was in charge of the "Let's Go" (but don't tell Brian Saunders that). Thanks to my experience there, it helped me get my first PAYING job at the TV station on campus at the University of West Florida where I am a physics major. I now understand why everyone always wanted out of master control! I found it funny that I had more responsibility volunteering at SCN than my paying job. I have since quit working at that TV station and am now working in the physics department.

I lived in Panama from 1988-1998 so I watched a lot of SCN growing up. Anyone who remembers me, feel free to drop me a line. I may have hated Panama, but I loved working at SCN.

Comments: I was with CFN from about April or May of 1959 to late 1962. I arrived there along with John Makela, Chuck Kelly, Sid Stark and Ron Rice. A Capt. Parish was the OIC and MSGT. Tony Valentino the NCOIC. Jim Pattison was program director. Others there when I arrived included Chuck Renner, Dee Trantor, Phil Jacobs, Ike Selik, Jan Christensen, Ken Mullins, Don Findley and Gordon (Stoney) Stone. Others who arrived while I was there were Joe Cioken, Gabe Ireton, Ron Linderman, Don Boddy, Jim Cook, ??? Dempsey, Dave Borenaz and Bill Whitehead among others - including a new NCOIC who promptly informed us that he wore his first name on his sleeve. I'm not sure of some of these spellings.

I would enjoy hearing from any of y'all.
