I am very pleased to announce a very unique broadcast on Radio Dismuke http://RadioDismuke.com Joining me on the broadcast will be special guest Kurt Nauck of Nauck's Vintage Records. I am sure the vast majority of people here are already familiar with Kurt and his auctions - but if you are not, you can read more about them at http://78rpm.com Kurt has generously agreed to make all of the over 10,000 vintage records in his current auction available for the broadcast. The records include everything from late 19th century wax cylinders to records from the very end of the 78 rpm era and feature recordings from virtually every major musical genre recorded between the 1890s and the 1950s - jazz, pop, classical, operatic, blues, country, ethnic, spoken word, foreign records, you name it. The auction even includes the world's only known complete set of very rare early 1930s RCA picture records. The specific records we will play were selected by Nuack's customers and Radio Dismuke listeners who browsed through Nauck's current auction catalog over the past few weeks and emailed in their requests. We will also be playing vintage cylinder records on Kurt's Archeophone. Because of the Archeophone's $16,250 price tag, it is a piece of equipment that is out of the reach of the vast majority of vintage music collectors - though I am sure that there are several ARSCLIST members who are very familiar with it. But if you are not, you will get an opportunity to hear one in action during the broadcast. Because we are expecting a large listenership, in addition to Radio Dismuke's usual stream on the Live 365 network, I have made arrangements for a second Radio Dismuke stream to be carried by another network, LoudCity. That second stream is now active and in many respects is an improvement over the Live 365 stream. I will be pre-recording the broadcast at Nauck's impressive Houston, Texas facilities this week and it will be broadcast at the following times: Saturday April 8, 2006 (Live 365 and LoudCity streams) United States Listeners 1:00 PM - Eastern Time Noon - Central Time 11:00 AM - Mountain Time 10:00 AM - Pacific Time International Listeners 5:00 PM - GMT Sunday April 9, 2006 (Live 365 and LoudCity streams) United States Listeners 8:00 PM - Eastern Time 7:00 PM - Central Time 6:00 PM - Mountain Time 5:00 PM - Pacific Time International Listeners 12:00 AM Monday - GMT Friday April 14, 2006 (Note: LoudCity Stream only) United States Listeners 9:00 PM - Eastern Time 8:00 PM - Central Time 7:00 PM - Mountain Time 6:00 PM - Pacific Time International Listeners 1:00 AM Saturday - GMT Saturday April 15 (Live 365 and LoudCity streams) United States Listeners Noon - Eastern Time 11:00 AM - Central Time 10:00 AM - Mountain Time 9:00 AM- Pacific Time International Listeners 4:00 PM - GMT Please note: These times are for the same show - it is simply being repeated so that people in various time zones across the world will have an opportunity to tune in. You may tune access both the Live 365 and LoudCity streams on the Radio Dismuke website at http://RadioDismuke.com The Radio Dismuke chat room will also be open on the days of the broadcasts so that you can interact in real time with others who are listening to the broadcast. There will also be a link to a technical issues blog where any known technical issues which might impact the broadcast will be posted as quickly as possible. Radio Dismuke is very dial-up friendly, so for those who do not have a broadband connection, please do not let that discourage you from making plans to listen. This broadcast will be historic not only because of the extremely rare vintage material which will be presented on it but also because, to my knowledge, this is the first time a radio program of this nature has ever been attempted. For that reason, I am very excited about it and hope everyone will be able to tune in.
