The Golden Age of Radio in a public radio friendly format!

Tuned To Yesterday features programs from radio's golden era (1930 - 1962) by genre, including drama, comedy, western, science fiction and more. Great to broadcast as a stand alone hour or part of a daily or weekly show, each episode features family friendly programs from when 'radio was television' in most homes - even after television arrived! There is currently a library of over 1500 hours of produced programs available (much more than what is currently available on PRX). If you are interested in regular carriage of the show, please contact producer and host Mark Lavonier by emailing mark@wrvo.org. The show is produced out of WRVO Public Media in Oswego, NY and makes no reference to station or locale in the show.
