In the mid 1920 my great-great Uncle Jack inherited the radio Station WRBC in central New Jersey and used it to launch the Retroist Broadcasting Company. The station was not a huge financial success, but it had a dedicated audience.
About a year ago I was cleaning out the attic at my family home and stumbled across a box of recordings from the time and I have been painstakingly digitizing and restoring them. I know the audio quality is a little iffy, but I promise it will get better with time. So now sit back, relax and prepare to be transported back in time. The year is 1929 and the RBC News Break is on the air…
This first show is dedicated to James “Travelin’ Jack” Retroist
