I remember that console very well...even though it's been 37 years since I've seen it !
I always loved watching REAL needles move back-and-forth,rather than digital-electronic scans.
And, yes, Woody had been the Air Force. In fact, one time around 1970 I think, he hired a guy from the close-by Air Base in Jacksonville to be a week-ender.
Sad to say the guy wasn't very good, and I'm being kind here, and only lasted a weekend or two.
He brought in his "Confusius Says" joke book and would read the one-liners out of it verbatim...not very funny.
I felt sorry for him, but it was another case of the "Gee, I'd Like To Be On The Radio !" Syndrome, and just didn't work out.
