Can anyone recommend a source of streamable (YouTube, etc) or downloadable (MP3s, etc) sources of broadcasted music or storytime programs which would have been on the air in the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s? Working on antique radios is pretty fun and gratifying, but once the radio is done and working, there's not much doing on AM radio these days and I'd like some cool period-correct audio for my radios.

I've found some cool vintage-style channels on YouTube that have 40's period-music from Xbox games like Fallout or L.A. Noire, but the 24/7 streams loop a couple times per day and it can be pretty repetitive after a while.

Content like music broadcast recordings with period-ads included would be cool, FDR's fireside chats would be interesting, those are probably easy to find though. Also, Christmas/winter music would be cool as it'll be that time of year in the next couple months. Maybe radio broadcasts of Apollo mission stuff? Maybe World War II news/victory broadcasts? And there's a Bill Cosby routine (...god damnit Bill :evil:...) where he would talk about getting scared by late-night storytime programs. That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for.

WRDV has a nice selection of big band and swing along with doo-wop and other music

http://www.wrdv.org/

I normally stream that to my two tube part 15 transmitter and receive it on one of my antique radios.
