Subject: reminisce about radio here

Radio has gone through a lot of changes over the generations.

I am too young, myself, to have been around during
what US/Americans can be heard to call
The Golden Age Of Radio.
Which, as I understand it,
is before television. Maybe there was cinema already though?

So what I recall about radio listening, over the years,
is all after said Golden Age,
because I was raised with television from the beginning.

But it was before computers and the internet.

Here in eastern Massachusetts there is a fellow named Bob Bittner
with a deep resonant voice that people have been listening to
for decades.
He keeps thinking of retiring but who will replace him?
The station from which he broadcasts, 740 AM,
many years ago had the call numbers WCAS
and became nicknamed "Wickus Island."
"Wickus," it has been explained to me, is how people pronounce "WCAS."

And I also hear that that older station broadcast folk music.

Anyone else want to chime in?
