Frequently Asked Questions

 

Use

This site is designed to make it easy to play your favorite old radio programs. Choose a genre or use the alphabet, above, to navigate to your favorite old radio program. Alternatively, use the search box to find your program. All episodes are in MP3 file format. "Play all episodes" links to an M3U playlist file. If you get lost just click the picture of the radio to return to the home page. Where possible clicking the title of a program links to a Wikipedia description of the program or its main characters.

Downloading

Downloadable compressed ZIP files are at the bottom of some of the Most Popular Program pages. Because the title of each episode links directly to the MP3 file for that episode it is easy to download the file for off line play. In Windows right-click your mouse on the title of the show, and then click "Save target as" to save the MP3 file to your hard drive. Note that this method does not work for the "Play all episodes" links. "Play all episodes" is a link to M3U playlist text file. You cannot download the shows from this file.
