Storytime! The Time when the @MinifigNewsguy volunteered at WGBH-TV

Once upon a time… many…many years ago, your humble Minifig newsie volunteered at WGBH-TV’s annual auction as the bid runner. I had no intentions to be on Boston’s Channel 2’s air, I just happened to be the second or third cut the TD hit on the opening day/hour of June 4th, 2006 at 3pm. A few things: One was it’s last one at the Western Ave Studios in Allston. Second it was the last traditional formatted auction for the station, the following year in Brighton was a bit different. Third they stopped doing the on air auction entirely, leaving options for an near-camera, non-intern experiences that didn’t involve answering phones.
