Tune into 1940s Radio BroadcastsComing your way on 1940s Radio

1940s Radio was formed by a group of enthusiasts who enjoyed the music and began an online stream so they could listen to great tunes and share a mutual hobby in the process. As many of you know things have become somewhat busier and we have had a lot of learning to do maintaining a service that people now regularly listen to and depend on.

More Spit and Polish

Although not yet apparent we have been cleaning up our act behind the scenes and some of you may have noticed little changes like regular time checks. The general auditing of the music archives is also an on-going process but this now allows us to stream track data showing title and artist (With the odd mistake perhaps).
