    One of our local 'easy-listening' radio stations switched to a new format, handle and name. They're now part of the CBS network. I went searching for them and got a page with a well-known West Coast station, near the Rev, CKNW, New Westminster, BC.

    Well it turns out that they used new mid-sixties Station Wagons. Here's a picture:

    And this Radio Memorabilia site had this back-handed compliment to the Radio Trade:

    a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free,
    and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."

    I figured you'd be familiar with that.

    What other kinds of Stations are there that would have used wagons?

    Band Wagon doesn't count? :)
