I love that website.

I use a lot of material from there but sometime it can be difficult to find something specific. There is a lot of complete episode or full 2 hours radio show and such in there and to get something out of it, you need to listen to the whole thing.

I highly suggest anyone looking for content to spend 2-3 days downloading and listening to random show from there and just grab and cut what you could use.

It also really open your eyes on other era of broadcasting and generic population ideas which to me, was an eye opener.

Good job JD for bringing this up.
