Dan:

I always think likewise when viewing old AVE. B & E. BROADWAY pics.......I guess it helped that those old tanks were built solid, that they lasted as long as they did.

W.B:

Your research is MUCH appreciated....thank you! Wink

Here in NJ, back in the 70's, "WVNJ" (WV ENJOY) advertised quite a bit on TNJ buses; WVNJ was then a very popular easy listening station in Newark.

All our vintage bus photos MORE than emphasize just how popular radio listening was, back in the pre-iTunes/iPod/internet era.


Man, it all seems soooooo long ago, now.......

TNJ (ex-PSNJ) Oradell garge, 1976.

Note the "RADIOJIT" poster; also, the other now-nostalgic ads.

Also note the "SCHOOL BUS" sign on #U-333's dash.......
