Re: [ARSCLIST] FM reception way back when

Ah yes, the sound of people drilling down the street - a distinctive whirring that went up and down with the speed of the drills...

Later better gear did nto get that sound any more.

Anyone remember similar experiences to this? I'm just listening to a tape made in 1960 (I recorded it, in fact) off the CBC's FM station in Toronto, and while the quality is excellent and free from interference, every so often there's a brief series of clicks..because someone elsewhere in the house changed the television channel.

We were a family of tape fiends. Schedules were noted..taping off AM was even worse, since light switches, television, running the dishwasher, opening the fridge, just about anything involving electricity would cause clicks, buzzing, static, whistle etc. As my mother frequently replied, "I can't pee in the dark."
