Yeah, especially ones pushing 50K watts. There was (still is) a station in L.A., KFI 640 AM, which could be heard up and down the west coast. I heard a lady got it one time in Virginia. Speaking of Virginia, when I was in college there many years ago, one time I was up late (asthma may have been acting up), and I got WLS in Chicago and WABC in NY. I listened to WLS when I lived in Urbana, about 120 miles south of Chicago. Came in loud and clear, unless there were electrical storms in the area. I listened to WABC before I went to Illinous, but when I came back in 1974, I unfortunately listened to a toal shitfest of a station, WXLO 98.7 Fm aka 99X. They were terrible. Not so bad when I first got back, but by 1976 when I left, they were unlistenable. I only started listening to them, because when I was in Illinois, I spent the summers with my grandmother in Brooklyn, and my cousin listened to 99X, so I did when I came back. I'm not in touch with him anymore 😂
