Progressive Talk Back 6am to 7 pm on WWZN


Apparently the effort to bring progressive talk back to Boston is finally showing more results than just one show or two; Jeff Santos announced on WWZN 1510 that the station will now air not just his show (6-9 am) but also Stephanie Miller, Ed Schulz, and
Thom Hartmann in the near future (they are buying the time, I believe).
As I understand it, it will be Santos 6-10 am, Stephanie Miller 10-noon,
Schulz 12-3 pm, Hartmann 3-6 pm, and a show to be announced later 6-7 pm
(a "local show" according to revolutionboston.com). This all begins Monday, May 4.

UPDATE: According to a station promo, the 6-7 pm hour will be a repeat of segments from the Jeff Santos and Stephanie Miller shows, "Best of Jeff and Steph"

What year was this?

Update: Please note the updated links at the bottom of this post.



Here is a picture I came across with very little acompanying information.
(Sorry the pic quality isn't better. I believe you can click on the pic to get a zoomed in look.)

Would anyone have any information on this product?

What year would this have been? 1950's?

Was this product ever on the market?

The inventor of this was apparently ahead of his time!

UPDATE: Thanks to Laurence from Methuen...we have found one of the places this ad originated! Check out: Radio-Newspaper(1939)

And thanks to Lou...more information is found.....here.
