Green Valley Radio is a vintage radio series in the form of curated playlists on Spotify and Apple Music. Set 80 years ago, this project serves as a lens to the past.
The main playlist, simply titled 'Green Valley Radio', is set 80 years ago and updated monthly with music and news as it would have been in that time. That means if you are listening to this playlist in May 2021, you are listening to the music recorded in May 1941 (or earlier). As this project progresses, the Green Valley Radio Archive will be the access point to the past, with each month's broadcast preserved and ready to be listened to. Access to the Archive is exclusive to Patreon supporters.
Music selection is researched with the help of the Discography of Historical Recordings at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
News pieces are researched primarily through the California Digital Newspaper Collection, operated by the Center for Bibliographical Studies at the University of California, Riverside.
Much work goes into researching, writing, recording, and editing the original content that brings Green Valley Radio to life. If you find yourself tuning-in often, please consider supporting the project and its growth through Patreon.

Whether you listen to this once, or come back regularly, thank you for listening!
