Ahhh, the Electro-Voice PL20. I talked into a PL20 for countless hours from 1991 through 1999.

I have also talked into these models over the years.

I think this is the mic my high school station used:

And the workhorse Shure SM58- as the page puts it, "The SM58 has a tailored vocal response for a sound which is a world standard. Rugged construction, a proven shock mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently. Outdoors or indoors, singing or speech—the SM58 is the overwhelming choice of professionals worldwide."
