World Radio News

Hans Knot sent some scans of a British radio magazine of  1968.  Very interesting with some ink about AFN in Germany.  How good was the signal in England.? I had thought it difficult to receive.

Our AFRTS-LA friends were getting some nice press.  Was there more than one issue of the World Radio News?  When I lived near Boston there were radio magazines well into the 70s.

Found: an AFRTS library

While doing renovations at Ft Lewis, 8000 AFRTS library transcriptions were found.  The disks, which seem to run from 1943 to the mid 50s were boxed, in good shape and still had the card catalog.

Here's a couple of reports:

The disks were at Lewis for the hospital radio station KMGH, which ceased to exist long ago.

Apparently, AFRTS has called them back in for cataloging and probable destruction per the agreement with AFM.  Your comments?
