Ken Burns’ EMPIRE OF THE AIR: The Men who Made Radio

Growing up, Web Watch remembers tuning in the local radio station that would air a Sunday evening block of old-time radio programs.

We’d listen to replays of The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, Ozzie & Harriett, and other programs, always entranced by the storytelling.  Hey, what did we know?  We didn’t even get any Ovaltine to drink. Continue reading DON’T TOUCH THAT DIAL: PUBLIC DOMAIN ARCHIVE OF RADIO AUDIO
