"June 6 is the 68th anniversary of D-Day--the invasion of Normandy by Allied forces in World War II. OTRCAT.com has two "complete broadcast day" collections available:

A fascinating listen, you'll hear exactly what listeners heard on D-Day including filler and rare radio programs. On D-Day 1944, radio programs such as Bob Hope, Fibber McGee and Molly and more are interrupted with news bulletins updating listeners to the progress of the allied invasion. President Roosevelt leads the nation in prayer in for our nation's soldiers.
