Video killed the radio star. - The Buggles

Internet Talk Radio started broadcasting in 1993 as the first radio station on the Internet. As part of the museum.media.org effort to rescue some of our past work, we're also maintaining archives of early programs in their original state. Over time, we hope to go back and rescue these archives, but for now we offer them to you the way they looked in the early days of the web. You may find some broken links and some musty audio formats, but we hope you'll find some use for the data in the state they are in until we get around to refurbishing them.
