The CBA Show first aired on Monday, March 5, 1999 at 9:30 P.M. on Channel 3 in Chelmsford. The shows concept was the idea of Tom Christiano, who hosted the first show. The show focused on Harrington Wine & Liquors and its owner, John Harrington. Since John was one of the founders of the CBA, he talked about how the CBA organization began, its purpose and membership. Then Mr. Harrington talked about his business, Harrington Wine & Liquors, its background, the store decor and operation of his business.
The CBA Show is now in its eighth very successful year and is produced by Paul Aronian of Advanced Video Recording, Inc. and hosted by Bill Martin. Each episode introduces a member business to the community and is repeated several times weekly, for a month on the Chelmsford Cable TV channel, from September to May each year. Paul and Bill come to the business to interview the owner or management and perhaps some of the staff. They introduce the company, tell a little about what the firm does and they take the audience on a video tour. They find out what makes this company a little different and what is interesting about the business—perhaps even a human interest story. As each business is individual, so is each episode. Surprising as this sounds, all this production is done at no cost to the business. Advance Video Recording and Paul and Bill donate their time and use their own company's equipment, making this show one of the many great values to member businesses as well as to the community.
