Description

On Border Radio 1939

The Border Radio Phenomenon. The "X" stations, situated south of the border in order to get around the Federal Radio Commission's regulations, were designed to send a signal all the way to Canada and beyond. For decades, beginning in the 1930s, stations such as XER, XERA, XERF, XEG and the rest attracted hordes of listeners, eager to hear musical performers and be swayed by pitchmen selling everything from Crazy Water Crystals to baby chicks, tomato plants to Last Supper tablecloths and autographed pictures of Jesus.
