In fact, I first heard Pink Floyd while falling asleep to WDAI (or was it WKQX?) out of Chicago on my new Pioneer SX-750 receiver hooked up to my equally new Epicure 10 speakers (a combo I bought with the first $700 I ever made that, as I recall, made my dad quite upset with me). I discovered FM radio every night (both waking and sleeping) with that setup.
