KYNT-AM 1450 Yankton SD Antique Clock Sign

April 9, 2020

Check out this beauty! My good friend Wayne came across this while visiting Kilroys, a slot machine, jukebox, and antique store in downtown Minneapolis.

This clock sign was custom manufactured for KYNT-AM 1450 in Yankton, South Dakota. Yes, Yankton actually had TWO radio stations in the old days. Most people are familiar with the mighty 5-7-0 WNAX. KYNT is Yankton’s other AM station. These clock signs were popular in the 1950s and 60s. Stations often gave them away to their top clients in exchange for being loyal advertisers and supporters of the station.

Does anyone know when this KYNT clock sign was produced? If you must have this for your collection, I have good news: it’s for sale! According to the price tag in the upper right corner, it can be yours for only $295.00.
