UPDATE: Here are the links for the slightly longer version of this program: PART 1 and PART 2.
This RADIOLA! is a special broadcast of the interview I conducted with Rich Conaty (host of WFUV's The Big Broadcast) at his home in Hudson, NY. This program features many of Rich's favorite recordings, and a discussion of the history and evolution of The Big Broadcast.
This program will be broadcast at 8 PM Friday on WHCL (with direct streaming here). It will also soon be available on my Live365 station, with a slightly longer version of the interview available for download from this site after the broadcast.
