    @RadioJonD Is there a New Year's Eve Audio Sources / Radio Broadcast thread or is it on there?

    There's not one. I usually just tack on public radio New Year shows in the annual Christmas schedule/programming thread.

    That doesn’t mean we can’t have a dedicated thread though. Or, put them here.

    I grew up in the era of Conelrad!
