When I was a young radio hobbyist, I taped as much as I could and as often as I could - and while I did not always have tape rolling, it was often rolling at the right time. In the 1970’s, my priority seemed to be logging stations and jotting down times and frequencies with not a lot of thought to historical content. Occasionally these little gems would appear… Like a mention of President Gerald Ford in a news clip… or some peculiar phrase unique to one era or another.
In 1975 and 1976 I was blessed to live in the country and have a decent radio (the DX150B) and 5 1/2-wave dipoles for 60, 49, 31, 25 and 19 meters… and living on the West Coast no less. And while the West Coast of North America was something of a radio fringe area, the reception possibilities for the Pacific and South Asia areas were delicious!
Anyway - here are 42 sound clips from days gone by - the PDF master list is below.
