Putting the Archives Where the People Are

Archives on the radio at UConn

We are continually looking for more effective ways to connect people to archives and help them understand the value of archives to a modern society and culture, I want to pass along an idea that an archivist here at UConn implemented in conjunction with the student radio station. “D’Archive” is a weekly show featuring conversation, commentary, interaction with primary sources, and more.

Graham Stinnett, Outreach Archivist, at the Archives and Special Collections, hosts and coordinates the content and guests, which will include archivists, researchers, and the general community. If you are interested in hearing the live version of d’Archive, air time is 10am on Thursdays  at 91.7 FM if you are in the Northeastern Connecticut area, or streaming live at http://fm.whus.org/ from anywhere in the world.

And, in case you missed it, the first episode is available in streaming form from the WHUS website:  http://whus.org/2017/09/darchive

That  episode focuses on the Connecticut Punk scene of the 1980s—What? You didn’t KNOW that there was a Punk culture in Connecticut?  Well, now you can learn all about it.
