WHERE THE MAGIC CAME FROM
A great friend of mine, Father Thomas Carten used to say the only thing that mattered in radio was what came out of that speaker. Carten was revolutionary in his right founding the RADIO HOME VISITOR, a reading service for the Visually Handicapped on WRKC FM Radio. After 41 years the program is still on the air.
WARM Radio, the mighty 590 brought you the hits, the news and contests. But it all stemmed from a radio board that is still working. Engineer Ron Schacht sent us three photos of the storied WARM brodcast board that legends sat behind and millions heard since it was installed in 1959.
Here it is: the RCA BC 3C

Too bad the current WARM was not afforded that recognition on its 75th anniversary.
