Special Broadcast Of
Nauck's Vintage Records Broadcast
Part 1 March 27, March 28, March 29
Part 2 April 3, April 4, April 5
Note: Because of the large number of people who are confined to their homes for safety during the coronavirus outbreak, Kurt has decided to extend the duration of the broadcast to include approximately 14 - 15 hours of content. To provide everybody with an opportunity to tune in to as much of the content as possible, we are breaking from the broadcast's normal format and splitting it into two parts and extending the number of days for which each will run. Please see broadcast schedule below for more details.
Radio Dismuke is pleased to announce the twenty-ninth semi-annual Nauck's Vintage Records Broadcast hosted by Kurt Nauck of Nauck's Vintage Records, the world's largest and most prestigious auction house of rare and collectible vintage records. Nauck's has partnered with Radio Dismuke to share with the public some of the rare and exceptional recordings that pass through their doors before ultimately finding homes in various private collections.
For these special broadcasts, Kurt generously makes all of the nearly 10,000 vintage records in his current auction available for the program. During the broadcast, Radio Dismuke will depart from its strictly 1920s and 1930s popular music and jazz format and play recordings from just about every musical genre imaginable from the dawn of commercial recorded sound in the 1890s through the end of the 78 rpm era in the late 1950s. Many of the records in the auction are extremely rare and the vast majority have never been reissued in modern formats.
One of the things that is special about the broadcast is that it will provide listeners a rare opportunity to hear very early cylinder records played through Kurt's Archeophone - a modern, electrical playback device designed specifically for the reproduction and preservation of vintage cylinder records. Late 19th century wax cylinder records are especially fascinating because very frequently they are the last surviving copies of the recorded performance.
In addition to vintage cylinders
and conventional 78 rpm discs, the broadcast will
feature other vintage formats such as Edison diamond
discs, radio transcription discs, picture records and
cardboard Hit of the Week records. Radio Dismuke
listeners have the opportunity to hear recordings from
a wide variety of musical genres ranging from jazz and
dance band music to classical, opera, blues, country
and even early rock and roll.
Because of the large number of
people who are confined to their homes for safety
during the coronavirus outbreak Kurt has decided to
extend the duration of the broadcast to include approximately
14 - 15 hours of content. To provide everybody
with an opportunity to tune in to as much of the
content as possible, we are breaking from the
broadcast's normal format and splitting it into two
parts and extending the number of days for which each
Part 1 will air starting Friday, March 27 and play in continuous rotation throughout the the weekend of March 28 and March 29. Part 2 will air starting Friday April 3 and play in continuous rotation throughout the weekend of April 4 and April 5. For Friday start times in your time zone, please see the "Broadcast Schedule" table below.
The Nauck broadcasts provide a
unique opportunity to hear some extremely rare and
historic recordings - a good number of which
have not been available to a public audience in many
decades. It is another example of how Internet
radio is able to provide to a worldwide audience
highly specialized, quality programming that
traditional media outlets are simply not able or
willing to take on.
