WARBIRD RADIO - Since 2009, Warbird Radio has tirelessly worked to preserve stories of Airmen past and present. In the summer of 2023, Warbird Radio is rebooting with a new website, and more sustainable approach. "In 2020, our hosting company shut down in the middle of the night, and our website went dark. It was completely unexpected. The audio content was safe, but the show stories, images, and everything else only live on the backup copy of the website." Says Matt Jolley, founder of Warbird Radio.
"It would take a mountain of work to rebuild, and re-connect each audio link so I just decided to start over when the time was right. That time is now, and I can't wait to get started." Added Jolley during a recent interview. Warbird Radio has over 1000 episodes and a number of different shows. In 2016 the station was the recipient of a National Edward R. Murrow Award, and a Washington D.C. Regional Murrow Award for Overall Excellence by the National Radio Television Digital News Association, one of broadcastings highest honors.
Warbird Radio shows will begin rolling out weekly, and contain a mix of legacy content, and new interviews says Jolley. "The easiest way to follow along, is here on the website. You can like and subscribe our social links, but please sign up for our newsletter. Between the newsletter and the website you won't miss anything." Says Jolley.
The first new shows are set to include stories from ICAS Hall of Fame Member, and PT-19 restorer Wayne Boggs, P-51 Mustang demo pilot RT Dickson, and Vintage Wings, INC's Jason Capra. The first legacy shows to hit the podcast feed will be from the award winning Warbird Radio Presents series, featuring stories from veterans of WWII and Korea.
