- RCA 1959 Company Biography
Lucian is our neighbor. He keeps fit by bicycling 5 miles daily and swimming up to an hour. He has trouble walking because the skin on his ankles is so thin. He still knows what is going on in the world. He reminisces about his days with RCA but has not seen this site because he has no computer. He thinks computers are a waste of time; ditto for television.
