Very good reception, I believe this is a 1968 production. The music would attest to it and President Johnson/VP Humphrey mentions.

1853 "Fried Hockey Boogie" Canned Heat
1901 "Reconsider Baby" Eric Clapton
1904 OM talking but has gotten a bit noisy, mentioned something about H. G. Wells' "War of the Worlds"
1909 Radio broadcast of War of Worlds begins with Buffalo News Report
1912 KB ID, weather for Buffalo, to "Elenore" The Turtles
1915 Local Buffalo commercials......NASA warning about Mars
1916 "White Room" Cream, reception now excellent
1917 News bulletin of explosion, song interupted
1920 "Hey Jude" The Beatles
2020 This has been WKBW Buffalo 15 minutes after midnight, then off
