The summer 2013 issue of American Road Magazine focused on: "Neon Sights that Keep the Night Bright". Dave Hutson, our guest in this podcast, is the man who brings the warmth of yesterday back to those glowing gas sentinels. He is the owner of Neon Time, a company in suburban St. Louis, MO that specializes in restoring neon signs. He is also part of the Neon Heritage Preservation Committee that was formed by the MO Route 66 Assoc. in 2008 to save endangered historic neon signs along the Mother Road.


In this second of two conversations, Dave shares some of the secrets to resurrecting the glow back in a motel’s marquee and restoring the allure of an historic St. Louis donut shop. You’ll find that the skill of “bending glass” and giving it the perfect hue is a precise and rare skill.
