The WJSV Broadcast Day
September 21, 1939
Antique Radio

From the introduction to the Old Time Radio Memories Collection:

"This unusual collection is the complete broacast day of the Columbia Broadcasting System's radio station WJSV AM, Washington, D.C. September, 21, 1939, was recorded in part because of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's address to Congress. This twenty-fifth special session speech covered FDR's plans to change existing neutrality laws in light of the coming European war. WJSV started as WTFF in October of 1928. WJSV changed its call letters to WTOP in 1943, and continues the same to this day. WJSV's typical broadcast schedule was Monday thru Saturday, 5:45 AM to 1:05 AM, and Sundays, 7:30 AM to 1:05 AM..."
