From Fort Hood, Texas to Tokyo Rose. That was my journey. The only radio GI's could listen to in the pacific theater during WWII was Armed Forces Radio. WVTR, Tokyo was the key station of the 18 in the pacific. I joined them in 1945 a few weeks after they went on the air. When the history of WVTR was written I was asked to contribute a memoir since I was the oldest vet they could find who had worked there. For WWII buffs:
