    I don't remember ever seeing "Journey2 The Mysterious Island" but the original Mysterious Island has always been a favorite of mine sense I was very young. It is one of those movies that I can watch over and over and never get tired of it.

    I recently started watching the television show "The Americans". In season 1 episode 4 there are a few shots of a Kenwood TS711. The episode takes place in the days after Reagan was shot, so the radio might not be exactly correct for the period

    That may be the only reference that I can remember that wasn't either "comic relief" or "spooky/paranormal."

    In one episode, radio plays a prominent role when ALF uses Willie's ham station to talk to President Reagan on board Air Force 1, which causes a lot of trouble for the family when the feds show up.

    Father Knows Best
    Season 3, Episode #21 - Short Wave

    While Bud is showing his family how he has learned to use a short wave radio, they overhear a distress call from a boat. He calls the coast guard and relayed what he was hearing on the radio.

    I searched but couldn't find a Youtube clip of the episode #21

    There are a few other references in episodes, but I cannot find the clips on you tube.
