1940sRadio.Com Vintage Radio Station

Author: Mark (Rory) Davies

1940sRadio.Com Studio Having come from a technical background, I needed to find something to occupy my time after finishing a number of substantial projects for Y2K (Year 2000) and taking early retirement. I already had a keen interest in music and also wanted to keep my IT skills honed so creating an online radio station sounded like a fun option to keep me occupied.

Not wishing to jump through hoops with PRS (Performing Rights Society), I chose to opt for an open-source music solution and the 1940s hit the spot perfectly. After a quick search on the Internet, I secured 1940sRadio.Com, circa 2012 and started experimenting with online streams and software to get to grips with all the pitfalls.

The Early Days

The station ran on automated software for about three years and was oddly picking up quite a following and it seemed only fair to take the time and trouble to take it up a gear so I went on the trawl for some help. This came in the form of Dave Dawes who was already a 1940s DJ and sound engineer who ticked all the boxes.

Dave graciously accepted my proposal to put together a more robust service and within a month we had tightened up the scheduling and taken the plunge to produce our own weekly shows. Things have snowballed a little since then and we now have eight regular presenters adding a fresh twist to the 40s every day of the year.
