Many shortwave listeners are familiar with the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS); we’ve mentioned them before and the wide variety of programming they offer via several transmission sites.
I recently discovered the AFRTS Archive, an excellent blog that posts archived audio and memories from the AFRTS. The AFRTS Archive is actively updated and chock-full of nostalgia.
It’s Memorial Day here in the States and found this a fitting time to dig through the AFRTS Archive.
Of course, you can still listen to the AFRTS on shortwave–here are the frequencies:
