Re: On Fratello -- Chuck Maddox Interview of Wally Schirra

Houston we have a problem... My watch is in Bienne! lol

Awesome post Fratello.. I like this unedited version more then the iWMagazine .

Cool how Chuck mentions Jeff and his pseudonym, was this the article?

R.i.p. Maddox & Schirra

: Last week, Fratello published a nice posting about the interview
: of astronaut Wally Schirra, by Chuck Moddox --

: For those of you who may not be familiar with the astronauts and
: their watches, Schirra was the first astronaut to wear an Omega
: Speedmaster in space. He was also the only astronaut to fly
: Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions. Yes, we can say it now --
: Schirra was probably Chuck's favorite astronaut!!

: The interview occurred in early 2007. Schirra passed away a few
: months later and Chuck passed away the following year (May
: 2008).

: Those of you who knew Chuck, and especially those who spoke to him
: on the phone, will enjoy hearing his voice again.

: Sincere thanks to Fratello for publishing this wonderful
: "attic find".

: Jeff
