UN RADIO CLASSICS
UN Radio began broadcasting from a makeshift studio in New York in 1946, sharing the UN message with the peoples of the world. It’s had an extraordinary history, shedding light on some of the most important historic milestones, charting transitions from wars to peace, from colonies to independent states and from the Cold War to the Great Recession.
The UN Radio Classics Collection is an online audio library of material from the radio archives, featuring the voices of Dr. Albert Einstein, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President John F. Kennedy, Che Guevara, Yasser Arafat and Nelson Mandela, a press conference with Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, press conferences with football legend Pelé, Mohammed Ali and Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu. Other notable contributors include Kirk Douglas, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Douglas Fairbanks Jnr., Claudette Colbert, Grace Kelly, Danny Kaye, Gene Kelly, Deborah Kerr, Sir Laurence Olivier and Gary Cooper.
The material is available free of charge through the UN radio webpage:http://www.unmultimedia.org/radio/library/classics/
