Show Schedules

I found this calendar letting me browse old time radio shows that played on any day in the 1920's to 1950's, does anyone know of another site like this? Or how many shows might be missing? I want to write an article about the media in the 1940s compared to today, and I am trying to quantify how many more choices there are today by comparing two days 70 years apart.

Hello Alice
You might want to check out the following site that gives a list of all the shows he has in his collection for any given date. I use this quite often. It is really a great site and very helpful. Click on "Search By Date" in the upper left hand corner.

Also, check out this site, Newspaper Radio Logs

Thanks so much! That newspaper log site looks amazing, I had no idea anyone had scanned all those newspaper radio listings.

Your welcome Alice!
It is truly amazing to think of all the work it took to scan all those newspapers and then to organize them. I am really thankful that those two sites are available for everyone to use. :)
