R.W. Apple was a shortwave listener.

Posted: 06 Oct 2006

Star New York Times reporter, who died 4 October, told the Atlantic in 1996: "Off the beaten track I take with me a small pepper mill (to enliven bland grub) and my Sony shortwave radio. It's amazing how many places don't have CNN and don't sell the International Herald-Tribune or the Financial Times." The Atlantic, April 1996. Internet access has taken up some, but not all, of that slack.
