The audio curator at Edison National Historic Site rummages through the archives of the legendary Edison Laboratory of West Orange, New Jersey. Tune in for Edison cylinder and disc record rarities, many not heard since "the old man" himself stashed them away, featuring: Tin Pan Alley pop songs, ragtime, vaudeville comedy sketches, flapper dance bands, old-time country tunes, historic classical music, laboratory experiments and other artifacts - all dating from 1888 through 1929.

Colin and Ian Hancock:
I, Colin, who is ten love listening to your show. I am a large collector of Jazz78's and love the stuff on Diamond Disks. Ross Gorman is really cool, when he does the clarinet. Me, and my dad's favorite stuff is Harry Raderman and Phil Napoleon.

Wonderful show as always! This is the best show of early recordings, both in content and quality of transfers. The Uncle Josh series from February was outstanding. I've been collecting since the late 1950's, and I enjoy hearing these recordings that are simply not available anywhere else! I've listened through most of the archived programs--only have about 6 month of 2005 to go!!
