TV Repairman Logs 44 Years and Counting

The good people of Lexington, Ky., will have someone to turn to when those DTV converter boxes get too tricky. Willard Lindon has been a repairman extraordinaire for a local dealership there since 1964. “You have to remember that in those days, radio was more common than TV, and all the TVs were black and white,” he told Business Lexington Lindon described the shift to color TV as the biggest change in the industry he’s ever seen. Tubes would weaken in early sets and had to be repaired periodically. He also helped bring in the county’s first educational broadcast, relayed from an airplane circling over the school. He continues to work part time at the family-owned business, Barney Miller’s.
