WLIW Pledge Drive Night

WLIW Pledge Drive Night

The Gallifreyan Embassy would usually take WLIW (the Long Island PBS station that showed Doctor Who at the time) by storm during their pledge drives volunteering during their British science-fiction line up nights. Here is the gang back in the '80s in this classic photo by Keith. From left to right is Louis, Andrea, Amy, Pete "Bug", Denise, Al (sitting in front on phone), Ken, Brian (standing behind Ken), PJ, Rob (all the way in the back), Tim (front standing), and Keith himself (standing). Thank you Keith for allowing us to share this photo.
