Radio address for October 12, 2013, which finds me getting ready for a long drive, thinking about the radio and those static voices in the darkness, and where they might be found once radio is really dead.
A good companion episode to this one is the Howell Creek Radio address for January 21, 2008. If you listen to it, you’ll see why. It’s only the sixth episode I recorded, and it’s six minutes long.
Another great piece of further reading is The Quest to Save AM Before It’s Lost in Static by Edward Wyatt, a medium-length NYT article published on September 8, 2013.
