Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The collection includes photographs, administrative, and marketing related documents stemming from station activities from 1926 through the 1970s. Several publications and documents were added, ranging in date through 2015, and reflect on the history of the station. These include a publication by the Maine Association of Broadcasters, summaries written by Edward E. Guernsey and Barry Darling, and a draft of a doctoral dissertation written by Erica Risberg, "We broadcast what people wanted to hear" : networks and local programming, WLBZ, Bangor, Maine, 1931 to 1945.

A bulk of the records are station logs for the years 1931-1957. Logs typically indicate the time slot during which each program aired. Many also include technical statistics, including voltage, current amps, and radion frequency checks.

Audio in several formats was included. Many recordings have been digitized and are available online at https://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/wlbz_station_records/
