About this mod

Replaces the 'Classical' radio channel's music with all-new music and ads from the 1950's!

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Dive into the Classics of 1950s Radio

Replaces the Classical Radio songs with new music, ads, and newsreels from the 1950's!

Compatible with More Where That Came From v3.2! That affects Appalachia Radio channel, this affects Classical Radio channel!

 
How does it work?

 
Think of this as a re-texture, but for audio. I swapped out the original audio files for new ones. Now, on the Classical Radio channel, instead of hearing Claude de Bussy's Prélude àl'après-midi d'un faune-iles, you'll hearThat's Amore. If you and your friend have this installed, you'll both hear the same modded song at the same time!

This mod has MORE songs than the default Classical Radio! How, you ask? Well, because for many songs I jam-packed 2 or more new ones into the same track! For instance, the original 11-minute 'Orpheus Symphonic' is replaced by four songs. There's even some ads mixed in with certain tracks. Talk about American ingenuity!

Tips and Patronage are appreciated. Support goes right into making more mods!

Conflicts?

 
You will have no problem using this alongside any other radio mod, so long as that one doesn't affect the Classical Radio channel. You can have both this and More Where That Came From (version 3.2) active! However, bear in mind that mod does plan to eventually overwrite Classical Radio at an undetermined future date.
 
If ever in doubt, run both mods and load Rad World Radio last! You'll never get a crash from a mod like this.





Song List
 
All the songs are taken from 1950s records, provided by Archive.org archivists. I also mixed in vintage commercials (typically between late 1940s and 1950s) from Archive.org.
 
Most tracks are digitized from a shellac record, which I think you'll find sounds neat. There is crackling on the audio, which came from their digitization process.

If you want to hear any of these, just copy the text into a Google search and it should bring you right to the Archive.org page.

How'd you do it?

 
I'd love to share how to do this so that we can have more radio mods coming from our community.
 
Bear in mind, it is not easy, and requires familiarity with modding tools! But where there's a will, there's a way.
 
If you want a time estimate, I would say it takes about 30 hours to make a mod like this. 20 hours between Excel and Archive.org, 8 hours in Audacity, and 2 hours to work the .xwv conversions and .bsa2 packing. Yes, it is largely a labor of organization to get this done, rather than direct editing. Your time will be composed of fitting songs into time blocks, and tweaking the timing in Audacity to get it just right.

Closing Remarks

 
I hope you enjoy! This is a mod I made not only because I saw a demand, but also because I just wanted to hear some better radio without an announcer!
 
If you ever want to peruse Archive.org's fantastic collection, I highly recommend! There are some real gems that open up more of what made the American 1950's such a desperate, but idealistic time. For instance, did you know there was an obsession with Polka music? Now you know!
 
Here's one of the sources for vintage radio ads:

Here's my Archive.org query, which you can use to dig through the same songs I did! It will contain all of Archive.org's songs from the 1950's:
