Fordham University: Rich Conaty’s Big Broadcast Lives on in New Digital Archive

Fordham University: Rich Conaty’s Big Broadcast Lives on in New Digital Archive. “When Rich Conaty died in late 2016, the WFUV DJ left behind a devoted following of listeners, some of whom had been tuning in for more than 40 years to hear him spin jazz and pop from the 1920s and ’30s on his Sunday night show, The Big Broadcast. Luckily for fans, hundreds of episodes from The Big Broadcast’s archive are now available to stream on Fordham’s Digital Collections page, thanks to a generous donor and a collaborative effort between WFUV and the University Library.”

FKA Twigs Launches Digital Archive

Singer FKA Twigs has launched a digital archive of her work. I was not familiar with Ms. Twigs, but I rather enjoyed her music when her Web site finally loaded (I have lame Internet and this is a very resource-intense site.) Hint: when you’re listening to the audio the play icon will pulse. When you pause it, it stops; it won’t turn into a pause icon. Just click it to play again. Many of the visuals I saw were surreal and intense; I’d review it more thoroughly before letting kids explore it.
