Rat Patrol Radio: Wartime Tunes!

Rat Patrol Radio first went " on the air " September 22, 2000. As a Founding Broadcaster at Live 365, we have been on the air continually for over twelve years, streaming a playlist comprising Big Band and Swing songs from the mid-1930s to 1945, with authentic WWII radio clips and news broadcasts.

Rat Patrol Radio continues to serve as a living memorial to the men and women of the Greatest Generation who gave their all so the world could be free.
