Here is a nice way to spend a Memorial Day afternoon:
KGGF-AM 690 is still a very old-fashioned radio station out of Coffeyville, Kansas. No online presence.
Tulsa is within its coverage area, but inside the house, I need a little help pulling it in.
The Select-A-Tenna 541-M has a 3.5 mm phone jack so I can connect it directly to the tuner. (It is capable of working without connection by induction, but this isn’t physically convenient in my setup.) It is a now-discontinued item from C. Crane Radio.
I simply tune to 690 on the tuner, then fine tune on the Select-A-Tenna.
KGGF carries Kansas City Royals baseball games, which is what I am now listening to.
Monday-Friday at 8:35-11 am, OpenLine (“the 4-state regions’ most popular and enduring radio program”) features news and sports plus a call-in show for people to sell stuff. This will really take you back. You could imagine Herb Jepko and the Nightcaps coming on later in the evening.
Feels like the 1960s!
