Welcome


UPDATE: Expecting new material from FEN and AFKN. If you saved anything, I'd really like to hear it!
March hit count is well over a thousand (1145!!!). THANK YOU, and thank you for sharing this site. If you're new, welcome to the archive. It's been amost 15 years since the 'old network' existed. From 1943-96 the network would block book radio shows. Over the years it changed from Old Tyme Radio but the concept was the same but with a bunch of top Los Angeles radio talent. In 1996 our friends were all fired and it seems to be more or less US satellite music networks. It's cheaper and easier to use. I don't think it's better.

I plan on celebrating those years.

Your comments, memories and ideas are always welcome. At the end of each post it'll say something like 0 Comments, click it and you can leave your comment.

So, who are you? What was the best thing about Armed Forces Radio?

Did you save any airchecks?

    It may not be better, but unfortunately, it may be just a reflection of the times. All radio is a shell of its former self.

    I was a dependent overseas in the mid 60s... The special and unique sound of AFRTS was, and always will be, special to me. I grew up with not only the local AFRTS jocks (Athens, Greece) but also the big names like Ira Cook, Roger Carroll, Karl Haas, Jim Pewter, Joe Allison, John Doremus, and more...

    Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end...
