Well I am pretty sure I've posted this link before, not that it matters.
When I started in the 1960s my first experiences were with short wave broadcast stations. There was no such thing as TV live from the USA or Australia. Skype and FaceTime were in the far future.
Radio Australia would fade in and out. Radio New Zealand was a good catch. Many broadcasters had English language services. On the hours and half hours we'd listen for the interval signals. Many communist nations tried to blast us with propaganda. All I wanted was a QSL card!
Anyway, grab a drink and listen to the past. Enjoy.
