This long-overdue RADIOLA! observes the yearly changing of the calendar with the requisite gaggle of shellac recordings. May your New Year be better than expected!
Just before recording this program I was shocked and saddened to hear that my friend Rich Conaty, host of The Big Broadcast, died on December 30. RADIOLA! would never have come to be without Rich's inspiration and encouragement. Therefore, this program is dedicated to his memory.
