Media Interviews with TOAC where Everything Old Is New Again!

Live! The Old Appliance Club on  RADIO  

Jack Santoro, founder of  The Old Appliance Club had an informative and inspiring interview for listeners in the Detroit, Michigan area this Sunday, 1/26/03, on the Joe Gagnon Show in Detroit, Michigan.

 

Joe Gagnon, better known as the Appliance Doctor featured The Old Appliance Club founder, Jack Santoro, on his 10am Sunday radio show on 1/26/03. Jack explained why and how he created the concept of a worldwide central clearinghouse for vintage appliance enthusiasts, restoration specialists and users of classic appliances. Santoro also serves as the historian for TOAC and editor of The Old Road Home, the only vintage appliance magazine in the world.

 

Joe Gagnon, who operated an appliance rebuilding shop for 20 years, was amazed to find out about The Old Appliance Club just a few short weeks ago. Joe writes for The Observer and Eccentric Newspaper in Michigan. In his recent article spotlighting TOAC, Joe was so taken by Jack Santoro’s Antique Stove Virtual Service Call® idea that he believes appliance manufacturers throughout the USA should adopt Santoro’s system to assist the homeowner and end user of their products.

 

If  I could roll back 30 years and start over again, I would love to refurbish antique appliances, commented Gagnon. Saving the environment, providing a quality product and making a living at it certainly makes a whole lot of sense.

 

Jack and Joe really hit it off and inspired callers are flocking to TOAC to field their questions. 

 

Here's as tiny capsule of  Joe's impressive background and why he is known as the 'Consumer Gladiator':

Joe became a member of the National Association of Service Managers and eventually the President of such.
Joe helped draft and introduce into proposed legislation, The Appliance Repair Act which has failed several times to pass into law. This same proposal has now currently passed unanimously through the Senate in Lansing and is due shortly to be approved. An amendment was passed through the House to change the name of the Bill to read the "Gagnon Law". 

His proudest award to date is from his peers and media representatives - the Esther Shapiro Award for Excellence in Consumer Reporting.
