D-Day Special is Up and Running!

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

2012 D-Day Special – Update

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

Important D-Day Update!

I was going back through the D-Day files to tag them so that they were compliant with Live 365 rules, and realized that the third hour of the broadcast was identical to the 5th hour!  I’ve scoured the Net for the correct file, but every source has the wrong file as the third hour.  After

D Day Special Broadcast

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.

RPR Needs A New Theme!

This is a call-out to all listeners, requesting ideas for a new WordPress theme for the Rat Patrol Radio blog.  I’d prefer something that allows widgets, so that I can put the Player Widget here on the site which will show the currently playing track and allow VIPs to start listening just by clicking the
