AFN Munich studio, Germany, Feb. 23, 1947: Ralph Moffatt, the disc jockey spinning records on AFN Munich’s “Midnight in Munich” show, is surrounded by the records he plays. Moffett would play the tunes in alphabetical order, so one day listeners hear all numbers beginning with S, the next day those with T, and so on, but he admitted he has trouble fitting all the requests into the two-hour, 30-records show. Before being drafted, Moffett spun records for the Minneapolis-St. Paul stations.
