National radio play lists

“In order to find out what music DR did actually play in the early years, the LARM search function has been extremely helpful. Nearly all old programme sheets are available, and their information may be read in critical detail. They are searchable as well, making it possible to do basic statistics concerning the music played. The tool may be used by anybody interested in detailed historical studies be it the arts, politics, or media studies.”


“National radio programme hosts have often been the first to document new trends in music, literature, the arts, etc. Often you can find broadcasts containing interviews with artists involved and sometimes even the foundations of reception histories of singular works of art. Using the annotation tool it is possible to mark up in great detail such broadcasts. It is an important field of sources which have been opened up for here, and it is of great value to historians of any persuasion.”
