    Wow–Daniel, you’re a true child of the legendary Conover. Jazz must have sounded pretty amazing in rural India over shortwave. I know Willis’ voice did.

    Thanks for sharing your story with us!

    I grew up in remote North-East India. Almost was rural aerea.Very backward. I learnt English and a lot of things about the great big world outside my city by listening to SWradio. It was my constant companion. Learnt to love America and American Jazz which I listened to on VOA’s program hosted by the great Willis Conover. It was a let down when I arrived as a freshman at the Univ of Michigan, and I found out that SW radio was almost non-existent in day to day life in America.
