About This Site
The Philadelphia Radio Archives is devoted to preserving the history of
Philadelphia radio broadcasting. The site is written by Alan Boris, an
avid broadcast historian, author, member of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia, and a technology professional specializing
in developing software and large scale web applications. (More about that here) This site was founded
in late 1996, originally located on the AOL Hometown service
at http://members.aol.com/PhilaRadio. In the first ten years of
operation, tens of thousands of visitors stopped by to learn
about the history of Philadelphia radio. Many thanks to the
dozens of people who have written encouraging e-mails over
the years, including many industry insiders with offers of
assistance and corrections.
The AOL servers where this site was fomerly hosted were unceremoniously
shut down in November, 2008. In early 2009, the site was relocated to
the PhillyRadioArchives.com domain, and in May of 2009, a total site
redesign and modernization was completed.
This site was redesigned again in Summer 2011 to coincide with the release of the Author's book, Philadelphia Radio. For
more information about the book, see this page.
