The core of the Wanamaker organ is still the original 1904 organ by the Los Angeles Art Organ Company which was located in Festival Hall and a central attraction of the fair, as well as (at the time) the largest pipe organ in the world.

To listen via a web browser, it looks like you need to use either this link:

or this link:

Then try on Wednesdays at 7pm EST.

It was murder mysteries at 7:20pm EST this evening!

I hope this helps,

Thanks for the heads up; I wasn't aware Wanamaker's was broadcast.

At the start of tonight's broadcast, there was an announcement that there was a technical problem connecting with Macy's, and they are still trying to get it going.

This was on the Yesterday USA "Blue" network, the second link in RichardW's post above. A note on the Wanamaker site indicates the broadcast might be on either the Red or the Blue network, so try both each week.

Both of those streams can also be tuned on a WiFi radios.

I'm assuming Yesterday USA having a "Red" and "Blue" network was inspired from the early 1900s (1927 to 1942) when NBC radio had two networks, Red and Blue.

Despairing I was unable to get the concert through any of the 4 ways listed. The last two just gave me talk radio. I hope I will be able to find a recording :oops:
