The AWA Journal

The AWA Journal (used to be Old Timers Bulletin or OTB)

The AWA Journal is AWA’s quarterly publication mailed to dues paying members.  Its content is a mixture of columns, radio related news and feature articles on many different facets of communications history, personalities and technology. The Autumn issue features a discussion of upcoming AWA on-air events along with a review of past events; the Winter issue contains a retrospective of the AWA Annual Conference, with the Summer issue containing full details for that event.

US Postal Service Mail Handling Changes May Affect Delivery of AWA Journal

Numerous published reports have described recent changes in mail handling and delivery, as ordered by the Postmaster General.  These changes reportedly include cost-saving measures such as elimination of most overtime and cancellation of extra truck runs.  This could result in mail being left behind at the end of a work day, and may delay delivery of publications such as the AWA Journal.  Therefore, as a service to AWA members, we are posting the entire Summer issue of the AWA Journal on this site, and will evaluate doing so with future issues.
