ECARS has received a
gift from Lloyd Bankson Roach, K3QNT, ECARS #3823,
of the recording of a historical commercial radio broadcast which he
wrote and directed in April of 1969.
It was broadcast over WERS-FM and
WBZ-AM in Boston, Massachusetts.

It has been donated to ECARS for historical purposes only. It features amateur radio operators in the Philadelphia and Boston area including ECARS founding member Jim Lightfoot, WA1KRN, then VP/Gen Mgr of WBZ Radio. Not only does it cover Amateur Radio in general but has a generous discussion about ECARS, its origin and its purposes.
