[ARSCLIST] Special Radio Dismuke Broadcast With Kurt Nauck

The special Radio Dismuke broadcast this past April in
conjunction with the last Nauck's Vintage Records
auction was very well received by listeners so we will
be doing it again.   Below is one of the announcements
of the broadcast I have sent out.  If you are
interested in submitting a request,  you can find
links to the latest Nauck's auction on the Radio
Dismuke website.

I am very pleased to announce a unique Radio Dismuke
broadcast featuring featuring special guest Kurt
Nauck, owner of Nauck's Vintage Records. The broadcast
will take place in early November from Nauck's
impressive and museum-like facilities just outside of
Houston, Texas. We conducted a similar broadcast in
conjunction with the previous Nauck's auction last
April and it was so well received by listeners that we
have decided to make it a regular semi-annual feature.

Kurt has very generously agreed to make all of the
nearly 10,000 vintage records in his current auction
available for the broadcast - and the very best part
is the specific records we play will be selected
entirely by Radio Dismuke listeners and Nauck's
customers. For the duration of the broadcast, Radio
Dismuke will depart from its strictly 1920s and 1930s
popular music and jazz format and play recordings from
just about every musical genre imaginable from the
dawn of commercial recorded sound in the 1890s through
the end of the 78 rpm era in the late 1950s. 

One of the things that is special about the broadcast
is that it will provide listeners a rare opportunity
to hear very early cylinder records played through
Kurt's Archeophone - a modern, electrical playback
device designed specifically for the reproduction and
preservation of vintage cylinder records. Because an
Archeophone costs over $16,000 owning one is beyond
the financial reach of the vast majority of private
collectors and they are usually found in institutions
such as sound archives and national libraries. You,
however, will have the privilege of listening to one
during the broadcast. 

In addition to vintage cylinders and conventional 78
rpm discs, there are other vintage formats in the
auction as well including Edison Diamond Discs, radio
transcription discs, picture records and cardboard Hit
of the Week records. Radio Dismuke listeners have the
opportunity to submit requests from a wide variety of
musical genres ranging from jazz and dance band music
to classical, opera, blues, country and even early
rock and roll.

So that listeners in time zones around the world will
have an opportunity to tune in, the broadcast will air
multiple times between November 4 and November 11.
Specific broadcast times will be announced soon in a
future posting here as well as on the Radio Dismuke
website (www.RadioDismuke.com) - so please check back.

How To Submit Your Requests

Simply go to the Radio Dismuke website at
www.RadioDismuke.com and follow the link to additional
information about the broadcast. There you will find
instructions on how to access an online copy of the
current Nauck's auction and how to submit your
request.  Because of the logistical challenges of
playing records from a wide variety of vintage
formats, the broadcast will be pre-recorded so all
requests must be submitted in advance. Since it will
take a few days to sort through all the requests and
to pull the records which will be played, please try
to submit your requests by Saturday, October 28. 2006

I am very excited about this upcoming broadcast and
hope you will have a chance to listen. The broadcast
will be a unique opportunity to hear some extremely
rare and historic recordings - a good number of which
have not been available to a public audience in many
decades. It is another example of how Internet radio
is able to provide to a worldwide audience highly
specialized, quality programing that traditional media
outlets are simply not able or willing to take on.
