North Texas Announces Expansion of Football Radio Broadcast

I remember going to SWC football games in the 60’s & 70’s, buying a game program & each school printing a full page of radio stations across Texas that broadcast all their respective games. 

I recall during Fry’s 1’st (or 2’nd) year at UNT that a KMHT AM, Marshall, Texas, broadcast our games for 1 or 2 seasons.

We have the best broadcast team in G5, maybe college football.

If anyone ever doubts this, just listen to one game on the Aggie's, Sooner's or Longhorn's networks. Dave and Hank are phenomenal compared to their competition.

The above photo I took at a 1985 UNT Homecoming game at venerable Fouts Field.
