Please tune in this June 6th for our traditional D Day commemorative broadcast. We will be broadcasting everything that went out over the air from CBS New York, at the same time of day it was originally heard on June 6, 1944.
When the broadcast engineer at the New York studios realized shortly after 2AM on June 6, 1944, that the rumors that were being picked up from German radio were not another false alarm, he began recording everything that was broadcast, and continued for 24 hours. That remarkable record has been preserved, and Rat Patrol Radio is proud for the last eight years to bring our listeners the chance to relive one of the most momentous days in history.
As is tradition, we will also have an encore performance on June 7th, starting at 9AM Eastern time, so that more people can hear the early reports.
