In my family's home in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area in the middle '70s, on a radio just like this one, I tuned around the AM dial and also to Armed Forces Radio on shortwave to listen to broadcasts of baseball games. In addition to the New York stations, at night I could pick up the Red Sox from Hartford on WTIC, the Orioles from Baltimore on WBAL, the Indians on WWWE, and — but only occasionally because WABC's signal was so strong and conditions normally didn't allow it — the Tigers from Detroit on WJR. Those signals, fading in and fading out, allowed me to follow my favorite team, the Kansas City Royals, through most of their Eastern swings.

I settled in Northern California in the late '80s, and although I still follow the Royals I became a Giants fan as well.

The origin of my SB Nation user name is a line of dialogue from The Mercury Theatre radio production of War Of The Worlds.
