The fifth semi-annual Nauck's Vintage Records broadcast hosted by Kurt Nauck of 78rpm.com will air at multiple times on Saturday April 26, Sunday April 27 and Saturday May 3.
Nauck's Vintage Records is the world's largest and most prestigious auction house of rare and vintage 78 rpm and cylinder records. The broadcast is held in conjunction with Nauck's current auction which closes May 3. Kurt generously makes available to Radio Dismuke listeners selections from the over 10,000 vintage recordings featured in the auction.
During the broadcasts, Radio Dismuke will depart from its strictly 1920s and 1930s popular music and jazz format to feature recordings from the dawn of recorded sound in the late 1800s through the end of the 78 rpm era in the 1950s. The recordings will come from a wide variety of genres ranging from jazz, to pop, to blues, to classical, to operatic, to ethnic and spoken word recordings and more.
One of the things that makes these broadcasts unique is that Kurt will be playing early wax cylinders on his Archeophone, a modern machine designed specifically for the playback and preservation of vintage cylinder recordings. With its $16,000 price tag, few private collectors can afford to own an Archeophone and they are mostly found in archives and national libraries - but during the broadcast, you will get to hear one in action.
The Nauck's broadcasts provide a unique opportunity for Radio Dismuke listeners to hear and enjoy recordings that, in many cases, are extremely rare and have not been reissued or performed in public in many decades.
For April's broadcast we will retain the new schedule format introduced for last November's broadcast and which was well received. Under the new format, the broadcast continually repeats throughout the day. Since Radio Dismuke is available in all time zones throughout the world, this format makes it easy for international listeners to be able to tune in at a convenient time. It also enables those who miss portions of the broadcast more opportunities to tune in again.
This time around, the broadcast will start at 11:00 AM Central Time in the United States on Saturday, April 26. It will then continuously repeat throughout the day Saturday and all day on Sunday, April 27. Normal Radio Dismuke programing will resume early Monday morning as soon as the last airing of the Nauck's broadcast has completed. The broadcast will then be aired again on Saturday, May 3 at 8:00 AM Central Time in the United States and be rebroadcast throughout the day. Normal Radio Dismuke programing will resume that Sunday morning as soon as the last airing of the Nauck's broadcast has completed.
Because the final production copy of the broadcast has not yet been delivered, the exact length is not yet known. Previous broadcasts have lasted between 5 and 7 hours. However, once the exact length is known, it will be posted to the Radio Dismuke website so that listeners will have an estimate of when the various replays of the broadcast will start.
