We came across a fascinating a promo for "Books from America" broadcast in the US in the 1960's. They were trying to collect books in English to counteract the cut-price propaganda distributed by the "Chinese and Russian communists". We talk to Jerry Berg who had just started a new website called On The Shortwaves, which I am pleased to note is still there and regularly updated. We also talk to the founder of SonicBox - an early form of wifi radio - before wifi had been invented. Professor John Campbell also explains about a low-Power radio station hoax in 1977 which was supposed to have been located on Ocean Island. Radio Guano was in fact closer than they thought.
