Underway: a huge project to gather and digitize old radio programming 

“The Radio Preservation Task Force, overseen by the Library of Congress, 
is taking on a worldwide project to collect and catalog radio 
recordings. Missouri was chosen to be a pilot partly because of efforts 
already made in St. Louis as well as in Kansas City, though to a lesser 
extent. Josh Sheppard, the national director of the task force, says 
there’s never been a concerted effort by any one federal institution to 
trace where such recordings are stored or even to determine what is 
actually left. ‘We realized pretty quickly that at least 75 percent of 
recorded radio has been discarded or destroyed,’ he says.”  from
