Library of Congress Launches Radio Preservation Task Force

Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago, John Anderson shared with Radio Survivor readers some details about a Library of Congress initiative focused on the preservation of local radio history all over the country. As he mentioned, The Radio Preservation Task Force is now hard at work identifying radio collections in every corner of the United States.
Radio Survivor is excited to announce that we are an official online partner and will be providing regular updates about not only Radio Preservation Task Force activities, but will also be publishing guest posts from Task Force members. It’s long been a goal of mine to increase Radio Survivor’s coverage related to not only radio history, but also radio scholarship, so I’m thrilled about this partnership.
And, finally, I am also happy to announce that I have joined the Radio Preservation Task Force as a Research Associate. Through my participation, I hope to bring more attention to college radio’s rich history. To that end, if you are aware of college radio archives, collections, and artifacts, please get in touch (Jennifer AT Radio Survivor DOT com).
