Jonthan Marks has just informed me that he’s added new studio recordings  to the Media Network Vintage Vault.

They include:

Jonathan comments, “I think you might like the Radio New Zealand stuff. Sounds like it was recorded yesterday.”

Indeed it does!

To top it off, I’m still amazed RNZI is still on the air and pumping out an amazing signal into North America. Click here for a recording made only one week ago.

Having never heard a New Zealand Bellbird live, I was most impressed to hear how RNZI (in the 1950s!) modified the Bellbird’s call for the distinctive RNZI interval signal. Don’t want to give it away, though, listen for yourself.
