Open Mynd Excursion showcases airchecks (radio broadcasts) from 1955 to the 1980’s!  Each week several airchecks are played and discussed, usually in the Chatroom, about the early days of A.M. & F.M. radio! Broadcasts from all across the U.S.A., UK Pirate radio stations, American Forces Radio (Vietnam, Germany,etc), Canadian and European radio and a variety of Specials are scheduled from week to week. An added
bonus is “The Cool & The Crazy” program from the 1980’s that is featured every other week! This show was on for several years, 1984-1988, on a local L.A. radio station and had quite a following! For more info, visit their website, thecoolandthecrazy.com.
