UW–Madison Archives digitizes old WHA ‘Farm Program’ radio broadcasts

Some of the oldest public radio recordings in the United States have been digitized by the UW-Madison Archives and made publicly available online, part of a project to save recordings of broadcasts that aired on WHA, a station launched by the university in 1917.

Available recordings include broadcasts from two shows: “The Farm Program,” which featured agricultural reports and research findings from CALS faculty during the early days of the college, and “The Homemakers Program,” an educational program aimed at women of the era.
