My start was in Northern Wisconsin at a summer camp in 1951. I lived in Des
Moines at the time and had an old Silvertone “portable” at camp. One of my
tent mates was from the Chicago area, was a Cubs fan and wanted to see if we
could hear the games at night on WIND, 560. Of course, then, we could hear
them at night like a local. There were also a couple of others I heard during
the day (WLIN, 560,Merrill; WLBL, 930, Auberndale and WOBT, 1240, Rhinelander).
When I returned to DM that summer, I wanted to see what I could hear on the
BCB and off I went!
