These days my idea of getting lucky is finding a great website about radio.
David Gleason On The Web really caught my attention and occupied much of my Saturday morning.
Gleason is a life long radio guy having caught the bug as a kid in Cleveland. He started DXing in the 50s and has had a fascinating career in the US and Latin America.
The site is filled with pictures that include his travels in 1963 to Mexico City and other locales in Latin America. It includes color shots of studios, transmitters and station buildings from that era.
One highlight is the extensive collection of Broadcasting Yearbooks he has put on line. It makes for an interesting walk through radio and television’s history to see ads and listings for stations starting in the 40s.
Take some time to travel back in time. It is a site you’ll return to again and again.
