CONELRAD, Sounds Pretty Complicated: Unknown Announcer [1953]

The radio engineering feat known as CONELRAD was rather difficult for the average listener to comprehend. Perhaps this is why there were so many PSAs (not to mention pamphlets) issued trying to explain it. At least this one is up front about the complexity!
LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
CONELRAD, Sounds Pretty Complicated: Unknown Announcer [1953]

Know what CONELRAD means? It stands for COntrol of ELectromagnetic RADiation. Sounds pretty complicated if you’re not an electronic engineer. And yet all you have to do is dial your AM radio to 640 or 1240 in the event of an enemy air attack, and thanks to CONELRAD, you will continue to receive official information. Remember, intimes of Civil Defense emergency, for official news and Civil Defense instructions, dial CONELRAD at 640 or 1240 on your AM standard radio.
