The WFMT Radio Network oversees the creation of several online audio archives, most notably Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin‘s collection of more than 1,200 hours of programs and the Studs Terkel Radio Archive which will eventually consist of more than 5,600 of programs that Terkel created at WFMT between 1952 and 1997. Both archives can be accessed below.

We are committed to expanding the way audio archives can be used in new and inventive ways: by teachers, librarians, journalists, radio producers, artists, scholars and the general public. If you have an idea, please contact the Director of Network Syndication, Tony Macaluso.

In addition to these two existing archives, the WFMT Radio Network plans to make more audio from our rich five-decade history available in the coming years.
