This issue’s Best On-Set Photo of All Time comes from longtime PGA
member and volunteer George NeJame, whose stages have hosted many a PGA General
Membership Meeting over the years. George evidently has been sitting on this
shot for more than 30 years, waiting for a suitable venue from which to show it
off. We’ll let him pick up the story …
"This photo was taken in 1984 (one of my earliest forays into producing)
when I was working at the Production Group in Hollywood. Ted Turner had
partnered up with Fred Rheinstein from the Post Group to create the Cable Music
Channel (CMC) to challenge MTV. In order to get the channel on air in

Well, the Cable Music Channel never even made it to 1985, and we admit

still there. But we’re proud to give this deserving moment its shot at
immortality. Thanks, George!

photo way better than that.” If that’s the case, we dare you to prove it.
