The Goodwill Station
WDIA, Memphis, is one of my radio heroes. In 1948 it became the first all-black formatted radio station in America. It caused a sensation and inspired hundreds of other stations to serve African-American citizens. In Memphis WDIA was the central information point for black culture and community organization.
Today’s educational video focuses on the creation and early years of WBIA 1948 – 1953. I found the audio online. There was no date or production credit. The announcer in the piece sounds familiar. Please tell me if you know who his is:
