Abstract: Records of WMCA, a leading independent New York City radio station established in 1925. Its balanced and innovative format emphasized popular music, news, up-and-coming talent, and public service features. The collection reflects the station's interest in civic affairs and social action and contains information on two noted programs, The Barry Gray Show, which was one of the first talk-radio programs, and New World A' Coming, which provided a sympathetic look at issues facing African Americans and was inspired by the 1943 book of the same name by black journalist Roi Ottley. Included are background materials, correspondence, administrative records, award files, radio scripts, and audio recordings.
