About This Project

I recently built a custom PHP- and mySQL-based WordPress automation system for batch-adding image collections with 1,000s of images into custom WordPress sites.

This cutting-edge solution automates custom SQL INSERT statements, allowing an admin an easy-to-use way to add many new Deep-Zoom image custom posts into WordPress, all at one time, in just a few seconds.

A museum website, for example, using open-source JavaScript libraries in the front-end can use this solution to guide visitors on a journey through the thousands of images in its collections, and add more at any time. And since it's WordPress, every image can be shared socially; can have individual categories and tags assigned to it; and can (optionally) have comments added.

Part of this project also includes automated batch-conversion of any number of scanned images from TIF or JPG to DZI, all at once or at any time.

Who Uses This Technology?

Deep-Zoom Images are for those who need to present hi-resolution image galleries using modern Internet technologies: archivists, museums, photographers and others with a need to present collections of hi-quality, fast-loading imagery via web browser, tablet or smartphone.

Mostly, I focus on recreations of ephemeral relics from the better days of the USA.

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.
