When I was a kid in the late 60s sometimes I'd catch AFRTS-W on the shortwave, I remember it as continuous news items and pretty cool.

In 1964 the shortwave service ran a lot of news/public affairs but also ran entertainment programming. Ira Cook, Perry Como, Hawaii Calls, CBS Radio Workshop, Les Crane and more.  IT was a full service station.
