...is a good resource.

Very good! http://www.live365.com/index.live

Check out Radio Dismuke, for example, or any of the stations that specialize in OTR.

Right now I'm listening to Absinthe Radio.

You can listen for free, but joining means you have to connect only once, and access to many more stations. It wasn't dirt cheap, but well worth the price.

I remember when I accidentally found Live 365 back in 2001. The first thing I ever got to listen to was an episode of Fibber McGee and Molly. I was all alone that night, downstairs in my little den, with all the lights off. The modern world melted away quickly and I was just one more contemporary audience member listening to their Cathedral radio. Anytime I get magic like that, it's like crack. I kept coming back to it and hunting down new stations as my original favorites disappeared. I've had a subscription for years and I listen to it all the time.

The station I miss the most, though, wasn't music. It was WWIIRADIO, a station that played news broadcasts of all the major events of WWII starting with the Annexation of Sudetenland and ending with the Judgements at Nuremburg. It took several days to get through everything from start to finish. Along the way were great tidbits like the last broadcast (in morse code) from Corregidor, describing the starvation and enemy bombardment, complete lack of military supplies and backup, and details of their surrender to the Japanese just before the transmission suddenly and ominously ends.

I was just rereading that part about being alone in the house and listening to the radio. My husband goes for Boys Night Out every Friday night, and he says he can always tell when I've been up late, listening to the scary old radio shows. The doors are all double locked and all the lights are on, inside and out. "I could play baseball outside, it's so bright."

I have a big collection of Suspense! on CD, and I have to work myself up to listen to some of those episodes.

Try Rat Patrol Radio- it's quite similar.

Oh yeah I listen to Rat Patrol all the time. Homefront too. Nothing like my beloved lost Wireless War (it's not WWIIRADIO, sorry I got the name wrong) but good stations anyway.



I love Suspense. If it's a war-years broadcast with a celebrity, I'll pull up a glass of red wine (the closest I can get to Roma wine) and enjoy myself. If not, I'll look for a nice episode of Quiet Please or The Inner Sanctum.
