While I've been a user of this site for sometime, I've never thought to listen to any of the 'Olde Time Radio' files from the "Golden Age of Radio". My Grandmother had a set of cassettes that had several different programs: 'The Shadow'; 'Abbott & Costello', as well as various news "flashes" of stories - what's called "Breaking News" today - and often fell asleep listening. After watching 'The American Experience' episode on the anniversary of Orson Wells' "The War of The Worlds" I did a search for the original broadcast and, of course, this site was the one I came to. You know the rest of the story: once I listened to the program in it's entirety - my first time, by the way - I was once again hooked on listening to an era of which I sometimes wished I had lived in, where families from coast to coast gathered round the radio every night. That being said (sorry for the book, here... ) this current set of files I'm listening is first-rate, five star entertainment and is very satisfying to my soul in some strange way. Well done!

Great archive... But Lindbergh speech is from 1941

(5 stars)

The speech is given a date of "1938-00-00" but a search on a bit of the text locates it as being from September 11, 1941. "Charles Lindbergh's speech to an America First rally, September 11, 1941" Found it - as titled above - on the http://everything2.com/ site
