Roy’s TV Service
My middle name is Leroy. I shortened it to Roy for use on ham radio because Duane was confusing on Morse code and Roy is shorter too. Besides, Duane has 106 ways to spell it. I decided to shorten Leroy and use Roy for my business also. That was when I was a high school senior in the small town of Goddard, KS.
I have only one artifact that my mother saved for me. It is a leaflet that I paid the neighbor kids one cent to deliver to each house. That was my only advertising. It worked, and I was able to support myself well enough to go to college while working. I had a station wagon for my TV work and a 1954 Buick Century for my social life.
Times and prices were different then. My shop was in the basement of our home in Wichita, Kansas. I graduated from Goddard High School in 1959 in a class of 20. This brochure was handed out during my last semester of high school. I wasn’t 18 until the 13th of June in 59.
