Links to Free Audio Content

Forum contributor Scott gave us a kick start on this new project, so I'll lift a few lines from his post to open this book page. Scott says "I seem to recall there was a thread once that contained links to sources of free audio content. I'd like to see new, current list here, perhaps as a category under web links, or a standalone page... I'll start things off with some free audio content that I use, or have come across while looking for free content. Most of these I have asked for permission to play on my station, or gleaned enough from their website to determine that syndication was OK" • dysfunctional radio • American Sunrise Radio • a mixshow for low power radio stations called the Groove Factory • live, streaming and downloadable, available to all FCC-legal & Legal Part 15 stations • live, streaming and downloadable content • five-minute newscasts at the top of the hour • local weather delivered as a podcast • weekly naturopathic health podcast • live call in show as MP3 stream and podcast more... • live MP3 stream, diverse alternative programming, many different hosts • satellite network with MP3 stream, various talk shows, christian based • weekly live show, paranormal issues, MP3 stream, podcast • weekly live show, paranormal issues, MP3 stream, podcast • work at home moms talk show, podcast • electric vehicle news, alternative energy, podcast • fun music, covers, podcast more... frank19 adds "Here's fun and wacky content:" • Cheeze Pleeze • Professotr Nutmeg For more serious content: • Shortwave Report • Between the Lines Music: • Motown Memories From Mr. Klingon: • "A Klingon Word from the Word" (Klingon Bible studies) • "Programming in Tongues," discussion of doing alien linguistics using computers. scwis adds: • some live content, some on-demand, some downloadable • gaming info and red state talk • some live content, some on-demand, some downloadable • some live content, some on-demand, some downloadable • PSAs with unlimited distribution • production content for sale, a very few free dpownloads • will generally give permission in open markets • some live content, some on-demand, some downloadable
Quality News

I also stole this comment from Scott's posts, used to test the commet function - thanks Scott!

Wow... I found a web site that produces free-to-use, five-minute hourly news updates between 6am and 6pm, Pacific time. The organization is called "Quality News Network" and their website is

They currently offer news only via satellite and by streaming Real Media. I emailed their listed contact to inquire about using their service and if they could provide an MP3/podcast feed. I received a response within minutes. They said that a podcast might be in the works, and they are happy to have as many people as possible hear their program.

Little Orphan Archie Radio Program

Jason Remington writes
The Little Orphan Archie radio program is a eclectic obscure recordings from the 30s through the 80s, plus novelty tunes, one-hit wonders and lost oldies --music you won't hear anywhere else on the radio.

The program is FREE! We invite you to download the program, listen...and begin airing it each week. If you broadcast the show, all we ask is that you let us know the day and time you will be airing it each week, so that we can promote your station as an "affiliate" on our website. Our website is and each week's new show will be posted by 11 PM Arizona time Saturday night.
Thanks! I hope you find the program fits somewhere in your schedule.

Update from the
Tony writes "We are pleased to inform you that after considerable expense and numerous errors, we are streaming successfully in mp3 format with" "We are delivering QNN newscasts live 6a through 6p Pacific Monday through Friday. We also offer our latest newscast, and the audio quality is improved. Our plan is to start delivering newscasts three hours earlier to be feeding the East Coast through the morning (6a-Atlantic to 6pPacific) beginning the First of the year." "We are also delivering live and via archives -- and in mp3 format -- our new daily one-hour broadcast called 'America Back on Track' at noon Pacific. It is a drawing considerable attention because it represents the public’s hunger for information rather than the typical propaganda of the left and the right. Give a listen."

He produces a 60 second "Zine Review" of Alternative Press works.

The production is very good with a pleasant sound bed.

His invite allows Free-To-Air use of his reviews. All he asks is that you let him know who and where you are.

You can find him at Zotte Park Media which will list the Zine Review links to download the mp3 files.

I've begun emailing to find content for my station and has a few cool programs (I've seen a couple of them mentioned in posts at this site before). Unfortunately, here's their "not so nice" response:

Thank you for your interest in our programming. Unfortunately we do not partner or condone our programming being re-transmitted via commercial-free or Part 15 stations.

Strike this one from the list.



Has anyone researched the legality of running Old Time Radio programs? I can't find a definitive answer anywhere, but it seems as though it should be OK if pre-70s.


Good News For You

RiversideRadio here is a pot of gold waiting for you of public domain oldtime radio (OTR)

Select AUDIO

Search: otr

Carl Blare and gcnlive

Man, I've downloaded tens of gigs of OTR from there. That isn't a pot of gold, it's a goldmine! Thanks for looking out for me. I'm already running a full schedule of OTR programs from there but I'm worried about the legality of it.

I'm somewhat depressed about the answer from gcnlive - I wanted to run some of their talk radio shows. I've decided I'm going to email the programmers themselves to see if I get a better answer from them.

To cheer myself up, I just bought Now I hope I don't have to switch freqs anytime soon!

To Discuss GCN

I was surprised that GCN gave you the turndown. I always thought they would be receptive to Part 15 stations because it would mean more exposure for them.

For a long time there was a commercial-free version of The Alex Jones Show uplinked to under Creative Commons, free for non-commercial use, but that stopped all of a sudden.

I have sent e-mails to to seek direct permission to air Alex Jones, but they have not responded. On his shows Alex encourages people to copy and distribute his videos without asking for permission, but he has not said the same thing about his radio show.

Here is some good news that should cheer you up, FREE TALK LIVE, 2-hours daily, 7-days a week, from Keane, New Hampshire is free to use upon notification, either streamed live or broadcast later. They will list your station on their affiliates list.

Content Report

Finding Content for Part 15 radio stations and for streaming radio stations is an interesting part of the hobby.

Low Power Hour episodes #15 and #16 report on the topic of free programs, and links to the mentioned programs are posted at our website.

Low Power Hour # 17 will bring more free programs for your attention.

The Low Power Hour itself is also free for use upon notification, and your station will be added to our affiliate list.

Carl Blare



Thanks for the offer. When I get ready to go full-time, I'll email you for scheduling details.

Regarding GCN, I found a post on another forum where others had a lot worse things to say about their response and the management there. I noticed that free talk live is available to us and I think I could probably get permission from some of the other programmers as well. It's not over until... (and she's not singing on my station anyway).

source of free music has a lot of music that we're free to transmit. Check each artist's licensing info because it varies.

Have fun!
