I've just stumbled across 'radio echoes' which contains a huge range of radio broadcasts from the past. It's broken down into genre and done of the historical stuff is absolutely fascinating.

Good find, thank you.

Thanks Dagbladet

Found episodes of Round the Horne from the ‘60s that I used to listen to every week. In it’s day a great comedy. Somewhere in the loft I have 10” reel tapes of them but haven’t used my tape machine for many years

Thank you indeed - what a find!

The next time any of us feels inclined to think that our present difficulties over Brexit are insurmountable, it might be good to listen to this and reflect that we have been faced with far, far worse in the past.

Fantastic find - thank you so much! Just been listening to The Navy Lark which I enjoyed as an eight year old when there was no tv in our house!

Great find It's back to my childhood for me. There is a lot on there that I would like to revisit, I just hope I'm not looking back through rose coloured glasses.

You're all very welcome. And why not view it through rose tinted glasses? Just enjoy it. Some of the historical stuff is quite eye opening and sobering listening and there's also the lighter stuff of days gone by.
