Want to see or HEAR what radio was like in the past ??
On September 21, 1939, CBS recorded the entire broadcast day of its station in Washington, D.C., WJSV.
From the 5:58 A.M. sign-on through Arthur Godfrey's morning disc jockey show, the soap operas, an address to Congress by President Roosevelt, a baseball game between the Washington Senators and Cleveland Indians, 'Amos 'n Andy,' 'Major Bowes' Original Amateur Hour,' and four big band remotes (including one with Teddy Powell, Bob Chester and also the Louis Prima band) to signing off at 1:00 A.M., everything broadcast that day by WJSV was committed to phonograph records. All of those records have been digitised by the University of Virginia and is available at ---
