In Chicago, the Museum of Broadcast Communications has an extensive archive
of radio & tv programs. Although local in nature, Bruce Dumont might be
interested in the collection. www.mbcnet.org.

Subject: Radio archives?

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,
