Listen Like it's 1949

Posted: December 17, 2017

A few weeks ago, I put 5000 tracks From Archive.org’s great 78 project up on my server at Of Many Trades, available via Gopher. Now it’s also available as an internet radio station.

This is an endless shuffle through the 5000+ tracks currently available. You can listen to it directly in your browser, or open it from VLC or another media player to see metadata (including artist and track titles.)

And, of course, if you hear anything you like, they’re all available for download via gopher.

(More about Gopher here.) (More from the Great 78 project here.)
