Yes, listened whenever I had a chance. I think I found out about it either by reading the old rspw board on Usenet or perhaps Ross mentioned it on one of the Saturday night shows. I was able to pick it up in December of ‘91 when I was home on Christmas Break in Chicago. It barely came in, and it would fade a little bit, but I could get it. I remember a specific episode when Schiavone joined Ross and they took calls. Ross also mentioned that he’d autograph the old WCW Impel trading cards (that were out at the time) if you sent them to him at WSB with a SASE. I sent him a couple, and they came back. Still have them in one of my card boxes.
WSB was 750 AM if I recall.  We have WGN at 720 and WBBM at 780 AM in Chicago, so WSB had a fairly clear space to come in.  What’s crazy is that I was able to pickup the FAN from NY in 1992, which is/was 660 AM, while we had 670 WMAQ in Chicago (50,000 Watts).  No idea how I was able to do that.  This wasn’t in the car either.
