Welcome: This site is mostly posted with sound files and pictures.  The reader will find a resource of pictures and authentic, radio sounds of the past.  (A treasured past that now, only exists here and in these memories that I share with you.)  These stories are written from a radio engineer’s perspective, using an understandable, eighth grade vocabulary.

Please visit the Web links page that will take you to other, posted articles in this Old Radio series (stories not repeated here.)  Future postings are to include non-radio stories and letters to the editor.

Please do not download this material, except for your private use.  All correspondence including e-mail is considered authorized for posting unless marked, ”PLEASE DO NOT POST.”

This 19:4 Psalm of David, was displayed at the 1930s KFI Studios @ 10th & Hope and before W War 2, as a mural in gold around the rotunda of the KFI Studios at 141 N. Vermont.                

"Their Line has gone out all through the Earth, And their Words to the end of the World..."

We will hear these ancient words as read long ago by KFI’s Pat Bishop, and, we will see shattered fragments of the words of the demolished, mural, courtesy of Stanley Kelton.
