Good morning from AFN 1972



Earl Freudenberg shared a neat recording.  In every country, somewhere very early in the morning we would do a sign on.  Generally the stations were 24 hours so it's a programming element.

"This short announcement played every morning on AFNE at 5:55. It was the entire network when I was there in 1972-73.  Things Have really changed.  The 150,000 watt AM station at Frankfurt Went silent.  Don’t think there is anymore AFN Berlin."

The Berlin station went off in 1994, but AFN still serves.
