Do you remember?


This picture of WKLS, Atlanta, was used in a Stanton Magnetics ad in 1977. The ad described the 681 Calibration series cartridges, which were suitable for use by the station with its 100 percent disc-to-air broadcasts. These cartridges offered improved tracking at all frequencies, and achieved flat frequency response to beyond 20kHz. Each 681 cartridge was guaranteed to meet its specifications within exacting limits.

The Stanton Company boasted that these cartridges were used by the SJR Communications group — all eight of them; a large group of stations at that time.


That was then


This 1930s on-air sign comes from the Radio City studios of NBC, and for many years resided in the office of David Sarnoff, president of NBC and RCA, in the RCA building in New York. The sign is unique because of the small NBC element above the on-air sign. It was made expressly for Sarnoff. This sign was a gift of John Milton Williams to the John Milton Williams Museum of Radio Broadcasting History. Photo submitted by Larry Kass.
