16 Things That Must Not Be Forgotten

Things That Must Not Be Forgotten

Western countries created funds that deal with digitizing of national and international heritage. Old Radio just does the same.

We can’t afford throwing away even one phonogram as we need everything. The more information we preserve the better it is for all of us. That is what I do, says Yuri.

Old Radio doesn’t need participation of people while working. The robot compiles a schedule for the next 2-3 months and you will hear what he chose. Or you can search for what you want to listen to and enjoy.

Speech of I. V. Stalin. November 6, 1944.

The Copyright Act does not work properly in Russia. Many authors who used to be popular once don’t even know whether their records are still sold.

State structure can digitize the old records but they will ask a huge sum of money for that. Nobody will be able to pay that sum.

And why would we pay any structure for our own heritage? It is ours as it is.

    A true historian. Radio entertainment was a cool thing, you used your imagination. Many years ago my dad bought a compilation of old US broadcasts: The Green Hornet, Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, The Lone Ranger, many others. Maybe, we should try go backwards it would be good for us.

      “Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade. Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days! Didn’t need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight Gee, our old LaSalle (a car) ran great. Those were the days! And you knew where you were then! Girls were girls and men were men. Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent. Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days! Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win. Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin (five dollar bill). Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song. I don’t know just what went wrong! Those Were the Days!”

    Good Job,putting all content on the net,otherwise,it will fade away in the sands of time.

    A good thing. I’m glad he’s doing it, but in the end everything is so ephemeral. Look back 100, 200, 400, 600, 100 years ago and look at how preciously few artifacts survive, and how little we know of everyone who has ever lived and died beyond a few generations ago. I’m not at all sure 300-400-500 yrs from now we will have done any better at preserving the bulk of today’s artifacts, literature, music etc.
