Welcome to the first volume of the Radio Spirits Listener Series.
With a full week's schedule to fill, radio networks, sponsors, and advertising agencies presented a wide variety of fascinating content of all types during the Golden Age of Radio. A great number of these programs have been lost to time and, in many cases, only limited numbers of episodes - or broadcast fragments - survive.
The Radio Spirits library includes tens of thousands of programs, many of which haven't lent themselves to presentation in their own collections because of limited availability of surviving episodes, or the esoteric nature of the content. There was a lot more to radio than just the big names and the big shows. The Radio Spirits Listener Series will introduce you to some of these unique programs.
There's something here for everyone! From mystery to documentary, from comedy and variety to news and sports, from Frank Sinatra to Dizzy Dean, Volume One in this eclectic series gives you a broad-based look at radio at its most unique - including some rare gems not heard since their original broadcast.
Includes a Program Guide by Karl Schadow.
