- Art Vuolo, Michiguide.com columnist and frequent contributor was busy last weekend while returning from the east coast.
In case you missed the thrilling talk show on America's first radio station, Pittsburgh's KDKA-AM 1020, an actual video of the program is available on YouTube via this link: KDKA Show: youtu.be/babKEzej4KE. It's edited down to 30 minutes.
Then Art did a 2 hour oldies show on Cleveland's WIXY 1260, an Internet station recreating the legendary station at www.wixy1260online.com. When edited down it's only about 30 minutes...not two hours! If you're just kicking back and relaxing this is a fun way to ruthlessly kill an hour of your time.

The videos were shot in HD with direct audio. The WIXY video is in wide stereo sound!
