More Pillow Talk

Ken's post really brought back memories for me as well. In the Washington area WOWO Radio from Fort Wayne, Indiana was the far away AM station that I listened to (check out their 1960's coverage area at right). I'm not sure the songs they played were any different than those of our local Top 40 stations, but mixed in with commercials and announcements that referenced Fort Wayne streets and landmarks, it seemed more exotic and somehow, more special.

And sometimes those late night sessions were with WEAM and WEEL, two local stations. WEEL had to sign off at midnight, and for one summer that final song WEEL played before sign off was the last thing I heard before turning off the radio and drifting off to sleep...
