historyradio.org This week we have been going through our database and replaced a lot of files. New in the playlists are scfi stories by Stanley G. Weinbaum, ghost stories by Thomas Hardy and Charles Dickens, a crime story by Marie Belloc Lowndes, a real-life spy story by William Nelson Taft, The Red & the Black by Stendhal (photo) and Anthony Hope’s classic adventure The Prisoner of Zenda. And much more. So, some files have been replaced, but the total file number remains the same. The reason for this is that we are reaching the upper limit of what we are allowed to store according to our present agreements. Also, some of the files have been in the playlists for some time. We felt it was time for a little shake up. It means new content for our listeners.04.02.2019 at 10:16 pmLike

historyradio.org This week we have added stories featuring two new detectives: Uncle Abner created by Melville Davisson Post, and Drew of the Secret Service by William Le Queux. While the two characters have been forgotten today, they were much loved in their own time. The Uncle Abner stories are some of the earliest known examples of historical mysteries, while Drew of the Secret Service is an early example of a spy story.28.01.2019 at 11:39 amLike
