Talking History ~ The Radio Archive

All of the original programs produced by Talking History are archived on this site. Programs produced elsewhere for which we obtain permission to archive can also be accessed here. You can link to the archived segments by utilizing the the drop-down menu to the left and by clicking on the RealAudio or MP3 link adjacent to each program once you arrive at the desired archive. Shows are approximately one hour long and typically include segments from the OAH production center at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Dialogue, the University at Albany, and affiliated or independent producers (follow link to "Producers," on the left, for more information on our contributing producers). Segments produced for NPR satellite distribution by the OAH are now archived at and segments from OAH-Talking History utilized by the SUNY-Albany production center for WRPI-FM and WWW broadcasts are available here (in higher fidelity). Please note that you'll need RealPlayer or MP3 compatible software to hear the archived radio shows. Our files are optimized for various connection speeds, but generally, if you have a 28.8 Kb/sec. or higher speed modem and the most recent version of RealPlayer, you will have no problems listening to RealMedia program content. Faster connections permit listeners to stream higher fidelity audio (all files produced after May of 2002 are streamed as Surestream RealMedia files over a RealMedia server; this permits automatic bandwidth optimization of Real file playback). MP3 files can be downloaded and played on most computers and on all MP3 players. Click here to obtain free RealPlayer software: REAL.COM
