David Gleason's web site www.americanradiohistory.com is loaded with pdf's of hundreds of radio magazines that had early microcomputer related articles including Radio Eletronics, Popular Electronics and other consumer electronics magazines - a real wealth of information. David estimates he has two million pages on line.  I have looked at several locations on his site and found it very useful for history buffs for a variety of  electronic topics. The listing are radio related however computer historians will find  Byte Magazine .

David had impressive career in radio broadcasting and you can see this in his "David Gleason on the Web" . I wonder how Gleason was able to scan all these pages - someone must have burned a lot of 'midnight oil'.   The research David has done on his own family is fascinating reading going back to at least 1800.

A very big project to assemble all this data on a web site - for everyone  interested in radio history his work is available in an easy to navigate format. Have fun using David Gleason's 2,000,000 pages of radio history.

The American Radio History site is loaded with information and I have added it to my "microcomputer history and web sites and blogs" reference list of computer historical information.
