Live Radio Recordings
Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting and edifying audio recordings. "You Are There" radio dramatization begins with "live" background coverage of the historical event, and then the "on the scene reporters" take over. Everybody knows there were no radio announcers onboard the Niña, Pinta, or Santa Maria, (or from Ancient Greece, Medieval France, or the Battle of Gettysburg either!) but you will be transported back in time anyway as the show "broadcasts" from the ships, the shore, and from Spain.
The music of a generation. Dance music remotes from restaurants, ballrooms, hotels, and nightspots were one of radio's most enduring formats. First heard in the early 1920s, band remotes lingered on until the early 1970s as a feature of late-night programming. The remotes were usually unsullied by commercial sponsorship, and above all, they were live, preserving the music with a fresh spontaneity that explodes past the confines of the more familiar - and often abridged - studio recordings.
