Does anyone on the list have any suggestions as to where I might go
about looking for radio transcripts or any other information about the New
York radio station WRNY in the early 1930s?
I'm writing a dissertation about jazz in 1920s colonial Asia and, as
part of project, I've followed the Filipino trombonist Nicanor "Nick" Amper
from Manila to Shanghai, Calcutta, Singapore, and New York. I've found that
he was leading a group on WRNY in 1931 and 1932. I'd appreciate any
suggestions from the list about sources or archives I might consult to find
out more about this station.
