Radio Station Belt Buckles

Back in the 70s and 80s, belt buckles were a popular giveaway item at radio stations, I guess to hold up those wide belt jeans. Here are a few that survived, click to enlarge.

RTL was 208 Radio Luxembourg, from 1980. WSM Radio 65 is from the same time at the Nashville country station. WLAC was Top 40 in Nashville and featured the famous sun logo. WQXI was from the late 70s in Atlanta.

Did your favorite station give away belt buckles?
