Cornelius J. Carmody Family: 78rpm Victrola Record Collection, 1910-1944

My grandfather, John J. Carmody, saved the 78 rpm Victrolas of my great grandfather, Cornelius J. Carmody, covering 1910-1928.

He added a few more from the late ’30s and ’40s and my dad, John J. Carmody, Jr., preserved the records in a trunk in the attic.

So that Con Carmody’s descendants could enjoy lovely classical music and hear the same skips, pops & crackles he heard, I digitized the 78s.

This collection includes records from Irish operatic tenor John McCormack, Alma Gluck, Ernestine Schumann-Heink, Efrem Zimbalist, Enrico Caruso, Hugo Kreisler, Amelita Galli-Curci, Reinald Werrenrath, Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Stokowski, Olga Samarov, Mischa Elman, Marian Anderson, Arturo Toscanini and Jose Iturbi.

 

 

 

Aircheck Collection

I used to be a hoarder of found moments on the AM & FM radio airwaves

The Big Broadcast

Ed Walker, one of the Joy Boys, brought back the golden days of radio every Sunday night for 30 years.

Gunsmoke. Jack Benny. Dragnet. Lum 'n Abner. The Shadow. News of the day, much more.

The Big Broadcast played on WAMU FM on Sunday nights, mostly from 7 to 11.

The Eddie Stubbs Show

Eddie Stubbs's Sunday show on WAMU FM played a variety of classic honkytonk, traditional country and vintage bluegrass + deep catalog favorites.

This was a show for listening to while drinking beer in the sun in the afternoon, great music delivered with unique insight.

The Dick Spottswood Show

The "Obsolete Music Hour" played rare classic recordings of bluegrass, country, string bands, honky tonk, western swing, blues, gospel & old world music.

Great Music & Sports

Off-the-air live recordings of a now-defunct station playing all sorts of great American popular music from the mid-20th century, back when music was good.

You'll also find some Baltimore Orioles post-game highlights from the mid-1980s.

News & Music on WAMU

From elections to 9/11 to the war on terror, these off-the-air live recordings of events of the day are from NPR on WAMU FM.
