I just brought the list up to date and made a very belated addition of NJAntman to the contributors list.  Sorry NJAntman for the oversight, it was not on purpose.

About WatchKnow

We at WatchKnow.org feel that potential geniuses are everywhere, from small, rural towns to giant, sophisticated cities. But their potential may go to waste if they are not given the right educational opportunities. We at WatchKnow.org want to help make these opportunities available to everyone.

We believe that everyone is created equal, and we take the American Dream seriously. One of the best ways to make these ideals a reality for everyone is to offer free online educational material to our youth.

This is the vision behind the non-profit WatchKnow.org. WatchKnow has indexed over 15,000 online educational videos for children, putting them into a directory of over 3,000 categories. The videos are available without any registration or fees to teachers in the classroom and to students at home 24/7. You can dive into our innovative directory or search by subject and age level. Video titles, descriptions, age level information, and ratings are all edited for usefulness. The site invites broad participation in a new kind of wiki system, guided by teachers. We have had a tremendously positive response from educators to the website.

WatchKnow is a project of the non-profit 501(c)(3) Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, and is directed by Dr. Larry Sanger, best known as co-founder of Wikipedia, and edited by a group of editors and assistants, all trained as educators.

WatchKnow plans to index over 50,000 educational videos by the end of 2010. Imagine, in the long run, cataloguing and creating millions of short videos, so that one can quickly and easily find a top-quality video on absolutely anything a child is studying. If we come together, we can great such a resource.

WatchKnow has additional plans. We want to give everyone a boost in learning, even from the earliest years. We are thus presently sponsoring early childhood reading in daycare centers in Memphis, Tennessee, and are helping to arrange a study of the effects of this program. Sanger is also drawing on his experience with online encyclopedias to plan an innovative multimedia encyclopedia for early childhood. Additionally, WatchKnow is in the start-up phase of a program to enlist top tier private and public schools to capture their classrooms on video. The videos will be hosted by WatchKnow.

Please sign up! WatchKnow needs everyone's help. We need you to find the best free videos and embed or link to them here, we need excellent schools to video their classrooms, we need governmental and school districts help to make these educational videos possible in the classrooms, we need the support of parents and teachers, and of course we need students to use our website.

Welcome to RadioLovers.com - Where Old Radio Shows Live Again!

Whether you want to discover the best radio shows from the past or remember what the best adventure, crime, pulp, sci-fi, noir and more! There was a time before the iPods, Video on Demand, 3D, the Internet and online video games; back in the day sitting around the living room radio was a family tradition. Every night, families and their neighbors would come together and listen to radio broadcasts of Sherlock Holmes, Groucho Marx, The Avenger, Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, Superman and more. Radio broadcasts were so much a part of everyday life they could influence mass movements, such as the night Orson Welles told millions about an impending alien invasion... a "War of the Worlds." Re-live those times with the largest online archive of vintage radio shows, available to you for FREE!

To listen/download:

Browse around our categories list and find the vintage radio show/episode you want to listen to. On the link, right-click and select "Save As" on the menu and your mp3 download will begin shortly. From there, listen to it from your iTunes, Windows Media Player or any other media program. You can also upload the shows to your iPod, iPhone, Nexus One, Zune, BlackBerry, or any other mp3 player device.

LOL, well I have to keep you on your toes man.

I just love some of that old stuff. America really doesn't do that much anymore, but I hear Britain still does, and to a lesser extent, Canada.

Using my netbook and the library high speed wireless I can download radio shows faster than I can create the individual directories.  With the new battery I bought yesterday I have a total battery life in excess of 9 hours so I can download a lot of radioshows now.  :)
