Hi guys, I made these for myself and figured I might as well release them incase anyone else might enjoy them. It is one file full of music/commercials/newsupdates from the 40's.

http://s27.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2W9ZKYCS36SKQ18R1MGOC7Y08H

This is from the readme:

Thanks for trying my WW2 Swing Radio!

This file is all ready to be put into your "InFlight" folder.

Features:
Some of the best music from the 40's.
Brief commercials from the 40's era throughout the music.
Over 60 minutes of audio!
More!

Please keep in mind that I made this for myself and just decided to release it to everyone else. I know it isn't perfect, but I tried to use songs that would not get annoying after awhile and would blend in to the wartime atmosphere.

If you have any questions or comments please email me!
camaero@gmail.com

PS: The audio in this is nice quality. It's very relaxing!

Thanks for checking it out!

It's a shame my flights are usually so short cause there is some good stuff towards the end of the 60 minutes lol.

If there is enough demand for this, is there some place that will host it more permaanently?

The yousendit.com link will expire soon...

I am also working on a new one that should be better. Would you guys post some WW2 songs that should be included that werent? The new one should be cool. There will be someone to introduce every few songs. I will try and make it as authentic as possible.

Here are four composite collections of WWII radio entertainment, as heard from an in-cockpit radio, complete with tuning/searching through varied frequncies, radio inteference, etc...

I made these 18 months ago and used to host them on my Website (currently inactive). If I get my website going again, they'll be there again permanently, but for now this Yousendit link should last a while.. Only 7MB for all four selections.

Hey all, I received an email from Bill letting me know this thread was brought up. You can all download my original file from here: http://hosted.filefront.com/Camaero/

I always wanted to take it up another notch or two and even make my own WWII era sounding radio show, but I have just been too busy. Maybe in the future eh?

Don't know if you're interested but I put together a group of music that you can change inflight and randomize the play order between games.

get it here http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&c=570

description:
Inflight Music and Randomizer (IMR) allows you to randomize play order of music and to change music to various nationalities without the need to leave the mission.
IMR setup comes with USA WW2 music, additional nationality expansion packs are available.

Perhaps one of you on this thread can help me out in doing something similar...I've had Wiley's tunes & RT chatter on my game forever...but I'd like to have a few new authentically British tunes I have take its place...Mine are all of British Dance Band orchestras of the 30's & early 40's:Hylton,Gibbons,Ray Noble etc. etc.Stuff you'd hear in London in '39 & '40.I'd like to be able to put a few ( quite a few{???}) into "In flight" so that I don't get bored stiff listening to them in the same order each time I fly a new mission...what I'd like to have is a "shuffle" tool like on my ipod...is such a thing possible & if so am i limited to a certain time limit with what I can put into the "In flight"Music folder?

IMR uses a VB script that will randomly change the first three characters of a title. Since they ALWAYS play in alpha-nummeric order this has the effect of changing the order each time you run it.

Camaero, you may want to contact the good folks at www.airwarfare.com (http://www.airwarfare.com) to host this.

I'm baaaaack! (FliegerOffizier, now known as Doolittle81 on this forum)

Here are download links for my radio entertainment soundtracks. Each will provide about 30 minutes of entertainement as you fly your missions.

WWII Radio Entertainment (http://members.cox.net/bshdoinvst/WW2Radio.zip)

WWII Radio Entertainment Two (http://members.cox.net/bshdoinvst/WW2Radio2.zip)

WWII Radio Entertainment Three (http://members.cox.net/bshdoinvst/WW2Radio3.rar)

WWII Radio Entertainment Four...Pacific Theater 1945 (http://members.cox.net/bshdoinvst/WW2Radio4Pacific1945.zip)


Radio, Radio2 and Radio3 are best suited for European missions. "WW2Radio4Pacific1945" is best suited for China-Burma-India/Indochina missions, but can be used for any Western Pacific 1945 mission...

Download, unZIP (or Un-RAR) and place into your FB Samples/Music/InFlight Folder. Move any other files in the folder to another location, if you want to hear ONLY this one when you fly. FB will play Any and All files in the folder, in Ascii/Alphbetical order otherwise. For variety, for example, you could load the Radio, Radio2 and Radio3 files all into your Inflight folder, and you would have 90 minutes of music.

Ensure that in the FB setup for Sound, you toggle "Play Music" to ON position, and that in the Music Selection Screen you toggle the "Play InFLight Music" to ON position.

In Sound setup, also set the relative volumes of the music(this selection) and Objects(engines etc) and Radio(Wingmen Communications)...this might take some experimenting to get it the way you feel is best/most realistic...This "radio music" is intended to be "background" radio entertaiment, so volume is best set at lower level than Voices Volume(Your Flight/Wingmen communications) You cannot adjust this radio selection Volume from the cockpit...

It is recommended that this file, upon unzipping, NOT be Initially played in Windows Media Player, or other player, as it is recommended for an "In-Cockpit" WWII radio-reception "Experience", reflecting the situations/ambiance of a real mission...and is most enjoyable when 'tuned into" in real time as you fly enroute to your target area...searching through your radio frequencies for some broadcast entertainment while enroute to target/mission area... Please understand that, as in real life in the 1940's on a cheap tactical military specification AM radio, reception will vary by both volume and clarity as you scan your radio dial.

EURO Snoopy. At M4T, I would modify the description of the download to read something like:

Recommended for an "In-Cockpit" WWII entertainment-radio-reception "Experience", reflecting the ambiance of a real mission as you search your radio frequencies for some entertainment while enroute to your target/engagement area"


My original Readme's were poorly worded. It might also be useful, in that regard, if you posted at M4T the Readme, itself, as the Readme is not zipped with all the radio files.

Here's a modified version:

<span class="ev_code_PINK"> Unzip and place into your IL2/FB/PF/1946 Samples/Music/InFlight Folder. Move any other files in the folder to another location, if you want to hear ONLY this one when you fly. FB will play Any and All files in the folder, in Ascii/alphabetical order otherwise. Of course,all three "WWIIRadio" files can be placed in the folder, in which case you will have approximately 90 minutes of entertainment.

Ensure that in the FB setup for Sound, you toggle "Play Music" to ON position, and that in the Music Selection Screen you toggle the "Play InFLight Music" to ON position.

In Sound setup, also set the relative volumes of the music(this selection) and Objects(engines etc) and Radio(chatter)...this might take some experimenting to get it the way you feel is best/most realistic...You cannot adjust this radio selection Volume from the cockpit...

It is recommended that this file, upon unzipping, NOT be Initially played in Windows Media Player, or other player, as it is recommended for an "In-Cockpit" WWII entertainmentradio-reception "Experience", reflecting the ambiance of a real mission as you search your radio frequencies for some entertainment while enroute to your target/engagement area"</span>
