1430 was Kiss 108-Rex Sox baseball

Horse results were a big deal back then in those days before the state lotto. The old Record-American printed a special edition just with the results that would be on the stands by 7 PM.
My Mom listened to that race results show even when we summered at Hampton Beach. I would suspect the audience was at least 100K each day - maybe much higher. Corner bookies were everywhere back then. Ours was the local drug store where the pharmacist was the bookie.

My dad used to listen to that every night while we had dinner. I'd love to hear an old aircheck of that!

Up until MOYL the only thing 1430 had was race results from Suffolk and Rockingham - every bookie within 50 miles listened.
