Well, I'm listening to Little Walter right now, and it doesn't sound too
bad.  When I first turned on Donn Parker, there was some noise, but I
think that was coming from some device someone was using elsewhere in the
building.  That noise disappeared later, and the signal is quite clean
here in Brookline.

At least on the radio that I'm using right now, an early-60s vintage
Zenith AM-FM table radio, complete with vacuum tubes and a rather nice
wooden cabinet.  It wouldn't come in at all on my stereo.
