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.
