    @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!

    One of the song aired during the American Routes baseball special is Rhino Records
    They're also a video distribution company too. There is a OA Episode about it.

    Here's their commercial as part of their releases:
