(KNX 1070) — As the Allies commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings, fragile recordings of Los Angeles radio have surfaced for the first time since their original broadcast on June 6, 1944.

KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO reports acetate disks sat untouched for decades until volunteers eked out one more play and restored them with modern computer technology.



For more information on the recordings, visit the USC Digital Library.
