Broadcasting 50s Radio shows?
Posted: Thu Jun 03, 2010 2:53 pm
Are there any stations (online or terrestrial) out there that are currently broadcasting old radio shows from the 50s-60s? Was just curious if stations still even have this stuff and if they are broadcasting it. May be an interesting idea for a station. I figure if people are watching ESPN classic and know who's gonna win the game then why wouldn't they listen to some good old-fashioned radio shows from the golden era of our industry.

Radio in the United States is a major mass medium. Unlike radio in most other countries, American radio has historically relied on commercial sponsorship rather than public funding. KBS is a public corporation funded by the South Korean government and license fees, but managed independently. As part of the Constitution, the president of KBS is chosen by the President of South Korea, after being recommended by its board of directors. Political parties in South Korea also have the right to name members of the KBS board of directors.
