  1. I used to love digging around on AM radio. Thee used to be some great shows even as late as the ’90s. Can’t seem to find much now.

  2. I agree with Mr. Lock on this. All you get on AM radio these days are talking heads that are idiots. Take, for example, the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. These shows aren’t entertainment and don’t get me started on WLW.

  3. In the old days, 40 years ago, FM was like AM is today. I don’t know. The more things change the more they stay the same.

  4. Slim, if he sells his radio, then he would no longer have it. Some things are better than money.

  5. I have a (all mahogany) tube AM/FM Zenith my parents gave me for Christmas in 1962, and it still looks and sounds great. I usually listen to WNKU at least once or twice a week, and it only takes about twenty seconds to warm up, much faster than most women in my life. Not bad for 53 years young (the radio, not me).

  6. I’ve got a couple old transistors around the house that still work. Back in the 60’s they were made much more solid than nowadays. Nothing is made to last now. We’re in a very disposible society. I long for the old days.
