Listen to the interview :

Harry: "[We] were in our room studying and did not have our radio on until we heard somebody holler in the corridors of the dorm about the Japanese having bombed Pearl Harbor. And then of course everybody grabbed their radios and the only radio [station] we could get in those days was the Dartmouth Broadcasting System, which worked off a system where the radiators in your room were the antennas."
