I recently listened to the two shows dated 04/13/65 titled "1965_04_13_Code_School" (time=40:23) and "1965_04_13_Fred_Allen" (time=20:54). It's obvious that the latter is from 04/13/65 as a portion of " Code School (and meeting Fred Allen)" listed in the database.

What's also obvious is that the former can't be the code school portion of that same show. At 40+ minutes, it's a full show & must be from around the same year as there are more commercials than the 1-2 from earlier years (1964 & before). Further, Shep doesn't talk about code school; the show revolves around radio & TV signals, the use of short-wave and CW.

A search of the database trying to ID certain portions or references (i.e., Joseph Conrad, reaching a CW operator in Murmansk, having Ch. 4 in Cincinnati taken over by a minor-league baseball game from San Antonio for a spell) or ads (Tijuana Smalls, a PSA by Mayor Lindsey about noise pollution, a NIH drug PSA [w/ Rod Serling, of all people!]) has been feckless thus far...

Anyone able to shed light on this will be awarded a brass figlagee with bronze oak leaf palm.

At ease, mens...

Well, I can tell you all the shows it is not (I checked them):
NOT 6-6-72 "Code"
NOT Kalish 98b 6-07-73 CW Band Radio, Learning Code
NOT DX Ham Radio CW- Feb 71 (did not audition, but DB description doesn't match)

Linsday was mayor from 1966-73, the Serling drug spot is found on shows from January 1971.

I scanned the database for other titles in this period, but none seem to match, so what we have here is an undated episode from the early '70s.
