PHOTO INDEX: OLD TRANSISTOR RADIO.
We've all done it, laying in bed at night pulling in the big station. In my youth my favorites were WABC, CKLW and WCFL in Chicago. Once in a while I'd tune in to WFIL Famous 56 in Philadelphia but that was in the afternoon. Others took to listening to WARM Radio in far away places. I recently got an e mail from a listener who tuned in one night to all night deejay R.J. Harkins. He documented it on a special card as well as on YOU TUBE for our enjoyment.
Radio station 590 WARM Scranton, Pa. with R. J. Harkins (ID at 3:28) on the overnight shift. As received in Philadelphia in September 1981. Shown is a QSL card they sent me for my earlier reception of the station. The QSL was a very old card from about the 40s.
There's static.....but that was part of the adventure and AM Radio!
