69 Stereo Question

I installed a new stereo in my '69 Camaro. It has an orange wire that needs to be connected to an always on 12v connection (for clock and memory). The fuse block had a connection labeled Batt, but it is dead with ignition on or off. Is anyone familiar with a wire below the dash that is always hot?
Thanks

Re: 69 Stereo Question

I wonder if a fuse next to the BAT terminal in the fuse block is burnt or you have a bad connection in the fuse block ?. Most of the fuse blocks I've seen for this era have terminals in the middle of the block labeled something like BAT, IGN, ACC, LPS, and these terminals are jumpered on the backside to a fuse clip next to them so these terminals are fused for protection.
