Broadcast Nostalgia & Museum Websites
WCCO Radio - Minneapolis
Go back to the days when "the Good Neighbor to the Northwest" was a truly great radio station! This interesting site is maintained by Rick Burnett, W6CCO, and includes the following contributions by Kenny Broshofske, KJ9W:
1. A copy of a 1966 WCCO Radio Promotional Circular, with KJ9W's story about his visit at the station.
2. A recorded [but edited] air-check of the final broadcast of "Hobbs House" in March 1981, along with KJ9W's personal thoughts about nighttime radio then and now. [KJ9W still has the original unedited recording of the final Hobbs House program on WCCO Radio].
WABC Radio - New York
Go back to this legendary station's "Top 40" music days, including air checks of the great Dan Ingram and "Cousin Bruce" Morrow.

KNXR Radio - Rochester
Legendary easy listening station KNXR in Rochester Minnesota ceased on-air operations in January 2015 after broadcasting for 50 years at 97.5 FM. Now, it is back....well, sort of anyway. Those of you who enjoy easy listening music can click on the yellow highlighted call sign for 97Five - the internet streaming replacement for the original KNXR Radio. Features in the stream are original "John Doremus Show" and "Music In The Night" broadcasts.
WISN-FM [via Spotify] - Milwaukee
A website containing KJ9W's recreation of 93.7 WISN-FM Milwaukee Wisconsin, a radio station that dropped its easy listening format and call sign in December 1977. Once you've accessed the Spotify website you'll have to search for that playlist, but it is there! If you enjoy traditional easy listening music, become a "follower" by saving it. KJ9W's hand picked playlist for his recreation of WISN-FM is the best selection of easy listening music on the planet - bar none. Subscribing to Spotify gets you the music commercial free.
