Re: [ARSCLIST] OTR online?

All the networks started airing one-hour delayed programming for the non-Daylight Saving Time stations after the war, and this led to ABC (which had been NBC Blue before 1942) allowing Bing Crosby to pre-record and edit Philco Radio Time in 1946.

After financing Alexander Pontiof's (SP?) development of the first Ampex tape recorders from the Telefunken recorders brought back from Germany after WW II. Crosby used to tell the story of how the superior signal to noise ratio of tape was responsible for ABC's decision. Similar stories of how Telefunken's development of tape recording during WW II enabled the Germans to confuse the allied bombing command about the whereabouts of Hitler at any given time abound.
