I talked to Ken in 2018 about his Ampex ATR-102 tape machines after being connected with him by Nick Doshi.  Ken told me about his room and we had a very pleasant, quite long chat . I didn't think I was hearing him correctly about the dimensions of the room!  He had several Ampex ATR-102 tape recorders and many boxes of parts and accessories.  I have a couple of friends who also have ATR-102's as well as my own two.  So we went through his list of parts and equipment and made him an offer for those that we wanted.  I never heard back.  A little disappointed, but I dropped the issue.  Now I understand why.  Very sorry to hear about his ALS.

It's a good thing that Ken Fritz could not possibly suffer from OCD. 🙂
