Some 76 years and a few days later, we are approaching D-Day. If you have 24-hours on your hands, you can listen, minute-to-minute, to what was being broadcast on CBS on June 6, 1944: https://archive.org/details/cbs-complete-broadcast-day-d-day-1944-06-06. This is the kind of history that I enjoy. It tells you what the average American radio listener was learning about the landings in France.
This upload contains CBS Radio’s complete broadcast day for D-Day, June 6, 1944. Coverage begins in the early overnight hours on June 6, and continues into the early hours of June 7. The broadcast is broken into 24 hour-long segments. The professionalism, quality and integrity of the reporting is refreshing.
