Deep in the Heart of Texas

Tichnor Brothers Collection
Boston Public Library

Howdy y'all. Our road trip has entered the Texas portion of the country, and so too has the theme of the show this week.

A communications student here at Idaho State University, Maclane has had a lifelong interest in radio. From listening to old time radio of decades past, to the modern commercial sports talk, country, or top 40 stations, the small town community stations, and now getting involved in public radio, Mac knows there's plenty to appreciate and learn about.
Brother of Maclane, Jake is a cultural hobbyist and curator of pre-1960s publications, radio and various ephemera. His collection of outdated media formats takes up a considerable amount of space and is frankly beginning to become a nuisance. A man can only own so many reel-to-reel machines before he needs to look into a storage locker.
