WLBZ Radio Collection Features Streaming Audio, New Content
The WLBZ Radio Station collection now incorporates a new streaming audio feature available in DigitalCommons@UMaine. Users no longer need to download the audio file, but can instead click within each record to listen to the audio.
Since the end of March, fifty new recordings have been posted, with a combined running time of nearly 13 hours and more than 200 pages of transcribed text. Here are a few notable recent additions:
