Old Time Radio, All The Time!

Old Time Radio Cover Art Collage.

Rumsey Retro Radio is a LOCAL radio station operated by Bob Braaksma. It was started in 2009 as a neat way for Bob to share his antique radio show collection. It has grown into a popular LOCAL Station.


Rumsey Retro is supported by Bob and a by the generosity of those who choose to help. The real magic of the station is found in the many volunteer hours that are contributed by the hosts, friends, and the positive responses of committed listeners.

The station's broadcast is accomplished using two G5 Apple computers with specialized software. The terrestrial signal is sent from the computer through a mixer and to a studio interface system then out to a low power AM transmitter, located next to Bob's house on a 55 foot tower.

Thanks for enjoying our efforts and listening to Rumsey Retro!

Announcement: Effective Friday July 13th, 2018, at 10 AM MST., Rumsey Retro Radio will only be heard Locally over our AM1580 transmitter. Due to the costs and time requirements of maintaining our Internet broadcasts we have made the difficult decision to turn off our online streams.
