Besides our display collection of vintage broadcast equipment, antique radio and television receivers, and radio books and publications, we also have electrical transcriptions (also known as “transcription discs”) housed in the museum. Unlike the other parts of the collection, the public cannot enjoy these materials readily without special equipment to play the 16″ vinyl and acetate, particularly since some are in deteriorating condition.
Some of these discs might not have been heard by the public since their first broadcast, so we are very pleased to share them with you here. All downloads will be available for free. We are close to having some shows ready for download, so please keep up with our messages here.

For the moment, we’d like to ask you a question.
We will be posting mp3 files for you to download. We’d like to know: what bit rate is your preference? You can post your replies below (no sign-up required).
And thanks for visiting our project!
