The Independent Radio Station of the 1950s

Military training film on a New York radio station, WMCA, owned by the Nathan Straus family (1951), showing its ownership, management and activities. Good view of radio in an era when most stations were locally owned and operated.

    1. Oh, yeah, those were the good old days of radio. The Mom & Pop station era. I caught the tail end of that era, just starting to work for the major corporations in my final years in radio.
