The FM Radio Dial in Tampa, 1970

Last week, I had an aircheck from WALT radio from 1967.

This week, I have this find.  Someone with an outdoor antenna in the Tampa Bay area in 1970 caught every station on the FM dial back then.  Mind you, the FM dial was a lot less populated back then as compared to now, so you’ll only hear a few Tampa FM stations.  There’s a WTAN-FM on 95.7, for instance.  Q-105 was a few years away from existence, with WPKM occupying the 104.7 FM frequency.

In fact, the poster left a list of all of the stations caught on the FM receiver back then.  Must have been a good setup, as there are stations from all over Florida on the list, plus three other states: Georgia, Alabama, and Louisiana.
