After several years, I’ve acquired the “Una Mae Carlisle 1938-1941” CD I’ve been looking for. I love her “Blitzkrieg Baby (You Can’t Bomb Me).” I’ll be adding these 21 songs into the random playlist this weekend.
As I mentioned in my twitter feed, there were some discrepancies found while slicing the CBS D-Day radio files, so I’ve sliced and uploaded the NBC D-Day coverage this year instead. There was a gap in the NBC coverage between 10:15AM and 11:00AM EDT that I filled with the CBS feed. It was soap operas
I just found out last night that my radio station host, Live 365, has banned all recordings over 30 minutes duration. Since the average time per file for the D-Day broadcast is 1 hour and 15 minutes, I have to split each file into pieces, then tag each one. I hope to be done in
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.

It’s almost June 6, again, and as we’ve done for many years, we will preempt regular programming to present the complete CBS national broadcast day of June 6, 1944.

Thanksgiving is upon us, and that means it’s once more time to prepare the Rat Patrol Radio Jazzy Big Band Christmas playlist!

Starting at 3am EDT, we are proud and honored to present the annual Complete Broadcast Day of D-Day. This is 24 hours of everything that went out over the air on CBS on June 6, 1944, rebroadcast by Rat Patrol Radio at the same time of day as originally aired! This is probably as famous
I’ve just uploaded an 18-hour Christmas playlist, set to choose songs randomly. I am still working on a “hand-crafted” playlist, but have been under the weather the last few days, so it isn’t quite ready yet. Remember to rate the songs you like (and don’t!), as I will be watching the ratings and swapping songs
I’m still working on customizing the new theme, though a lot of work is done. Still remaining is finding where the code is for the images along the right side and replacing them, and getting the RPR Pinup Girl logo on the masthead. Also on the docket is getting the Christmas music ripped and uploaded.

The aftereffects were that I went to bed soon after arriving home, so am still uploading Christmas songs today! Not to worry, we’ll have a quick Christmas playlist up this afternoon (one of the advantages of working at
