The First FM Construction permit was issued to....W1XOJ Boston!
The first FM Construction Permit was issued to W1XOJ at 42 Mhz on your FM Dial!
What? Your dial doesn't have a 42 on it? ;-)
You can read more about the birth of FM and hear an audio recording from 1941 in this interesting article:
That Was Then: W1XOJ Boston
"On Aug. 18, 1937, the FCC issued the first FM construction permit to W1XOJ, Boston. The station signed on in 1941 as WGTR."
