There was a time when an AM car radio was a joy to listen to. Especially for geeks. Was the word ‘geek’ invented then?
Well, I spent my miss-spent youth DXing the broadcast band, listening late at night trying to see how far away I could pick up station. I remember the night I picked up mom and friends from an evening of bowling. I’d been listening to a local elevator-music station, daytime only. But on the same frequency of a station only 350 miles distant – in Toronto Canada.
The weather at home was in the 50’s, but when the forecast on the radio said there would be major snow in ‘The Bay Area’ mom and her friends were horrified. I had to explain that the Bay mentioned on the forecast was Hudson Bay Canada, not the Chesapeake Bay.
