After studying broadcasting in college, Aaron Mintz spent twenty years working part time for local Western Massachusetts radio stations WMUA, WHAI, and WDRC, playing songs for a weekly program called “Rock and Roll Memory Time.” These programming blocks consisted of themed lineups, focusing on hits of the 1950s and 1960s with featured “sound bites” of current events, news, and pop culture facts of the time. To amass content for the show, Mintz developed a strong network of contacts among his fellow broadcasters and began collecting. Former classmates also contributed to his findings, and he was inspired to digitize many of these rare materials after discovering a keen community for radio content on the Internet.
