Since we've celebrated the Bulbs birthday we've had so many
T.V, radio, newspaper, and web articles worldwide that we're
trying to compile at least a list of all the names of the sources.
The T.V. spots we know of in the U.S. were on Fox, NBC, CBS,
ABC, WB20, and CNN, as well as their local network and radio
affiliates. It was also on the CBS Sunday Good Morning Show,
the Kilborn show, and radio pieces, All Things Considered on NPR. Also, on
Aug. 10th, 2001, the spare bulb came back home for a visit, was
lit for the 1st time, and held next to the original. KRON, Channel
4, the Tri-Valley Herald, Valley Times, and Independent newspapers
covered the event.
The independent film "Livermore" was broadcast by PBS in 2004.
Come watch the Lightbulb's birthday celebration and your friends
from Livermore again, from the comfort of your
California Gold came to visit the Bulb in October of 2008.
Huell Howser had a great chat with Ret. Division Chief Lynn Owens,
and Fire Engineer Pierre Rodriguez about the bulbs history. To
