If I remember right, Washington State University in Pullman has an archive of radio programs. Your acquantance might want to get in contact with them, they may be interested or know of a good place to donate them to.

An acquaintance has an historic collection of 10,000 (sic!) 1/4" reel to
reel tapes of radio shows from around the world.

>From radio dramas with Vincent Price to music of the Maori people, to
recordings of Babe Ruth and Gen. MacArthur, to, get this, War Songs of
the Third Reich, recorded live 1939-1945 and sung by Musik Corps & the
Wacht Batallion of Berlin. All of it indexed.

He wants to donate them to a public archives. I am soliciting your
suggestions for him. Any ideas?

Many thanks,
