    A huge resource for historical radio programs. We have a group assignment where students create their own radio show and this would provide some good resources for demonstrating historical format, content and language.

    "The LBC/IRN Audio Archive, (London Broadcasting Company / Independent Radio News audio archive) consists of 7,000 reel-to-reel tapes in a collection that runs from 1973 to the mid-1990s. It is the most important commercial radio archive in the UK and provides a unique audio history of the period.

    You can only listen if you are part of a tertiary institution which has a paid subscription through the Athens ID system (v. annoying!) however you're able to read the transcripts for free.

BBC - Radio 4 - Podcast - 0 views

  •  
    BBC Radio 4 has some excellent podcasts on history, expecially In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg. Similar I guess to PBS in the US and Radio National in Australia. I've bookmarked the website here, but I actually find it easiest and most effective to subscribe to these podcasts through iTunes.
