Searching for a 1990s Anti-Discrimination Radio PSA

In the 90s, I spent a fair amount of time listening to AM radio in Michigan, and I would like to find transcripts or audio recordings of a series of anti-discrimination PSAs that I remember from those days. The general idea was that a boss in an office was trying to fill a job opening but kept turning applicants down because of over-the-top discriminatory reasons (the applicant was {a woman, black, handicapped, ...}), and eventually the business was unable to get anything done and maybe went out of business, because the prejudiced boss wouldn't fill these positions.

Why am I picking up AM stations in NYC and Boston on my car radio?

I live about an hour west of Toronto yet instead of getting CFRB 1010 from Toronto, I'm getting 1010 WINS out of New York City (albeit not terribly clear). I also can pick up WBZ 1030 from Boston and the signal is crystal clear, particularly in the evenings. I would think that since I'm in close proximity to Toronto, I'd pick up AM sations from there. CFRB 1010 does come in sometimes but not consistently. What gives? My car is a Mini Cooper S if it matters.

Saturday Morning Rock Show

In the late 90s in Portland, Oregon, there was an AM radio program called the Saturday Morning Rock Show (if I'm remembering right) on (maybe) 1010 AM. Ran for 3-4 hours or so. Switched to Sundays at one point, then back to Saturdays I think, and then was gone. For most of their time they only played local Portland bands. [more inside]

Which iPhone music dock meets these specs?

Consumer tech question: looking for an AM/FM radio that can dock an iPhone 4 that is also copacetic with Pandora and other music apps. The Crosley iSolo looked good, but some reviews suggest you can't use music apps, which is a deal-breaker. Clock, etc. unimportant and, aesthetically, an old-school look and feel would be ideal (i.e., nothing too super-mod looking). Any suggestions, MeFites?

Trying to find the radio-edit of the 1978 song "Time Passages"

I love the song "Time Passages" by Al Stewart from the same-titled album. I am one of the few that actually like the radio edit better. I cannot find it anywhere available to listen to or download though know it was on 1978 AM Gold by Time-Life which I cannot afford (rare CD). I tried getting that cd from interlibrary loan to no avail. Does anybody know where else it might be lurking?

What's the radio scale bar for?

A number of radios I've owned in my life, in addition to the AM and FM frequency labels, also have a "Scale" label, going from 1 to 10, across the range of frequencies. What's this all about? Is it ever used for anything? I've never heard a radio station say "Tune to 6 on your Scale Bar".

This is a question about AM radio reception in my car.

This is a question about AM radio reception in my car. I currently live two states away from where I grew up, and every now and then I drive back for a visit. When I start getting close, I try to tune in to my hometown public radio station, 910 AM. It seems like I can never get good reception until I'm just 20 or 30 miles out. When I leave my hometown again, though, having tuned into the station in town, I get good clear reception for nearly 200 miles. Why does this happen? [more inside]

MP3 Files to Old School AM Radio?

I'd like to "broadcast" my MP3 based collection of classic radio drama and spoken word recordings so that I can listen to them on a 1930's era AM radio. There are all sorts of little USB to FM transmitters, but I can't find a convenient (as in, no soldering required) solution for AM. Any suggestions? [more inside]
