My Uncle Bud's Radio Station

While I was at my sister's in Atlanta, I went through some old photographs and came across this of my Uncle Bud and his radio station. He had his own station in the 1920s. It was in his bedroom in Webster Groves. Later he worked at the transmitter at the airport in Saint Louis. He transmitted the weather to incoming pilots. He then took flying lessons and became a pilot.He worked for American Airlines for a while, but was drafted and died in a training flight.
