Good article.. (I like AM Broadcast band history). I hear WWL the odd time up here in Canada.

WWL was the first AM station I remember hearing that was east of the Mississippi, on a 1960's era Japanese-made transistor multibander.

Got a pocket transistor radio for Christmas... IIRC late 50s very early 60s, was about 12 yrs old... turned it on and the first station to be heard was WWL. Got me hooked on AM DXing.
