I wonder if a production company could be persuaded to to a program like this on a few vintage radio/tv collectors and repairmen?

Ken Burns documentary DVD Empire of the air. The men who made radio. (which includes an interview with Edwin Howard Armstrong's niece as she recollects the night they were awakened, the night he made his discovery of regeneration) is an outstanding watch.

Florentine Films.
1991 - 120 Minutes Runtime.

One could think that a 60 or 90 minute video on audiophiles, guitar amp nutz, tube radio collectors would interest the readers of Nuts and Volts (not a huge audience), I don't think the demographics are right for the investment. Empire of the Air was a societal change on par with the automobile, so the audience is much larger and it has Ken Burns name on it.
