Vacuum Tube Valley
It is well known that editor of Enjoy the Music.com Steven R. Rochlin was good friends with editor of Vacuum Tube Valley Charlie Kittleson were good friends over the years. Vacuum Tube Valley (VTV) was a magazine produced by Charlie 'C.K.' Kittleson for the DIY and tube enthusiast. The publication spanned many years; producing 20 issues in total packed full of excellent information about audio vacuum tubes, vacuum tube equipment and a variety of DIY projects. Sadly, Charlie Kittleson passed away on February 10, 2009.
When Charlie passed away everything went to the family and they were naturally distraught at the time. The family sought the help from many of us, his close friends, to help sort and figure out just what Charlie had and how to price it all. Many people worked diligently to assist his family and it took quite some time to liquidate much of his assets. Upon inquiring to the family concerning Enjoy the Music.com publishing various articles of Vacuum Tube Valley per Charlie’s wishes, as he asked Enjoy the Music.com to republish his writing before he passed away, the family signaled us to delay our effort and we followed their wishes. Now that some years have passed, the entire collection of VTV is now available online for all to enjoy! So come help us celebrate Charlie and his wonderful accomplishments by downloading and enjoying the fruits of his labor!
