I didn’t grow up in Minneapolis and missed out on the iconic radio station, WLOL. Jon Hunt reminisces about what made radio, and WLOL, great growing up for him as a kid.

I share Mr. Hunt’s enthusiasm for radio. I remember as a kid in the 80s having my boombox reading for the nightly top 10 with my finger poised over the record button so I could get a new song onto a mixtape. Later, in the 90s, living in Minneapolis, I re-discovered my love of radio listening to Rev105, which I wrote about almost 10 years ago.

I feel lucky that we have 89.3 The Current, but Mr. Hunt as right – even they don’t take the chances radio took back in the day.
