WSEC-TV PBS Illinois Stories @ Neon Shop
Updated: Aug 26, 2021
While WSEC-TV PBS was in Hillsboro shooting some other segments for the Historical Society / Montgomery County Bicentennial they stopped by the neon shop and shot a half hour episode of "Illinois Stories" which premiered on TV July 8, 2021.
I took host Mark McDonald on a tour of the neon shop and we went though the steps to make a neon tube using Corning Ruby Red glass from the 1940's.
Ev'rglo Neon Signs was established in Hillsboro Illinois back in 1932.
Special thanks to host Mark McDonald and cameraman Randy Phillips for coming to Hillsboro.
