I came across this in my research yesterday but it's worthy of it's own post. It's a military training film about a certain New York radio station, owned by the Nathan Straus family. It discusses it's ownership, management and daily activities.  On one side it's a strange little film that exists for virtually no reason, except to demonstrate the connections between Straus and the government.  On the other hand it's a dandy little film about what was an independent radio station while we sit here in an era with precious few.  More here.
