Hey folks, due to life events, I don’t have the Pearl Harbor playlist done. I lost all the radio news files last year and am going through Dec 7 radio new reports to build new excerpts. The special broadcast will be up later today.



Today is the annual Pearl Harbor special broadcast that we do every December 7th. This year, I’ve added more of the longer half-hour special reports and analysis, and fewer “filler” songs. I hope people don’t get too bored, and perhaps get a good idea of what the nation experienced as our nation was plunged into war.  I also have FDR’s complete “Day of Infamy” speech to Congress asking for a declaration of war against the Empire of Japan.

I’d love to hear your feedback after the show!

As some folk know, I work as a freelance historical researcher. I wanted to share this particular item with all my listeners. This is a very rare Honolulu Star-Telegram newspaper from December 7, 1941.

I’ll be posting more things on my business site,, as I get photos taken. All these items are scheduled to be listed on eBay this week, and I’ll have links to each auction at Freelance Historian.
