Les Paul's pirate radio station?

Sep 17, 2006 5:12 am

It seems that famed jazz players Les Paul and Earnie Newton may have run a low-power FM station out of an apartment building in New York City in the 1940s, if page 110 of the July 1940 issue of Popular Science magazine is to be believed.

Perhaps with equipment they purloined from NBC? With a cat named Static?
