Listener Comments and Reviews

Hi. Did you broadcast the Cubs game last night Oct.8? My folks whom are in their 80's live in Wilmington N.C. They were getting ready to watch the Cubs game, they are big fans, when The power went out from hurricane Mathew. My Dad really wanted to hear the game so he got out his battery operated radio. He could not find any FM stations so went to AM & found someone broadcasting the game. They are not sure of the station id but I thought it was probably your station. Wanted you to know how much they enjoyed the game & your announcers and it helped them stay relaxed during hurricane Mathew. They thank you very much. Their names are Art & Dot Jecha from Wilmington NC. Thanks, Their Daughter [I live in Telluride, Co.}

In 1950 I was 14 years old. As a kid I was obsessed with science magazines , (Mechani Illustrated and Popular Mechnics.). Both magazines were loaded with advertisements. I spotted an ad for a crystal that could made into a radio. I mailed in 75ยข and soon received a small lead slug with a tiny crystal imbedded. There were simple instructions to build a radio. The hard part was to find wire to wind a tuning COIL to tuning. In my grandfather's garage was and old junked car. I salvaged and ignition coil a tore it apart. I now had a couple of 100 feet copper wire. I used toilet paper roll to wind a three inch long coil. I amazed all of my young friends by receiving two radio stations. Near my home town near KDKA Pittsburg and WCKY Cincinatti. This is where I became fond of country music. At night I listened to the old ( hillbilly ) tunes. What I most remember were the adveritisements. That always ended by saying, Send your name, address, and a $1.98. I'm 84 years old now and this one of my fondest memories.
