My fascination for radio and the medium as a whole is almost as expanse as my newspaper/magazine reading. I started listening when I was 7 years old.
I usually listen and read so many things to the point of overload.
Radio stations I usually listen to:
570 WTNT (defunct)
Radio shows I oftentimes listen(ed) to:
Matt Drudge: The Drudge Report (defunct)
When I was younger and in school I’d get home and listen to the shortwave/am and listen till I went to sleep at 10pm or 11pm. This was way back when the internet was not ubiquitous and I didn’t even have a computer at home.
I’d sit and try to pick up whatever I could. I became fascinated with the curious pop up stations that repeated numbers in Spanish and Russian as well as other languages. The aptly named: Number stations.
This scanning of stations instilled the desire to learn languages as I desired to understand what I heard over the various stations on shortwave.
I still carry my shortwave radio and people ask me all the time what I’m doing as I shift around to obtain reception. I enjoy the conversations that come due to my radio listening.
