2016 MULTIMEDIA: Old time radio shows you might want in your virtual world

Old time radio shows you might want  
in your world
Many places in virtual worlds have themes that would fit old radio plays.  Perhaps some of the owners will want to add the opportunity to listen to an old radio show to the experiences available at their places.   

  • I have not tested all these links; some may fail. 
  • I expect you can present these using browser-on-prim.
  • You probably cannot play them directly through the music stream.
  • You probably can play them on a web-world.
  • You might want to make the web-world look like a set from the show.
  • But you should check on intellectual property rights first.
