******** A word about "FM
Most, if not all, of these recording were made by "DXer's"
(a term used to denote distant listening). Their hobby is
picking up FM stations from distances that most think are
impossible. Using quality FM tuners and antennas--and the
most important ingredient--patience, they hear FM stations
many hundreds of miles away routinely and approaching 2000
miles on occasion. A select few have recorded their
"catches" and were kind enough to allow their recordings to
be used here.
As you wander around this site, keep in mind that
most of these signals were recorded in Ohio,
Indiana or Illinois.
These folks have spent decades recording and documenting
their reception. Here's hoping you'll enjoy a few hours of
listening to the fruits of their labor and in the process,
that you'll get a glimpse into what FM Radio sounded like
"back in the day". To learn more about FM and TV DXing,
