WJSV Broadcast Day

     This is a complete broadcast day from WJSV AM Washington, D.C.  Franklin D. Roosevelt gave a speech to Congress, and radio station WJSV recorded their entire broadcast day, to keep a record of it.  Because of these recordings, we have a rare sneak peak at an entire pre-World War II day in the life to America.  The music, the news, the entertainment.  09/21/39 is a great keepsake.

Each of the following broadcasts were aired in the varying length format as noted.
