Larry King knows a thing or two about what makes great radio. He has been on the air nationally for more than a quarter-century and, according to The Guinness Book of Records, he has interviewed more people than anyone on earth. Larry has assembled a collection of digitally restored and remastered shows that fostered his love for radio, including comedies, dramas and variety programs. As Larry says, This is the soundtrack of my childhood. Indeed, long before Lawrence Zeiger of Brooklyn, NY became Larry King, this eclectic group of classics shaped the formative years of a true radio legend.
