Very Cool

Via Gizmodo:
XM is doing something really unique next week and I can't wait to listen. Beginning Wednesday, June 6, XM is going to air the original radio news bulletins from NBC Radio for the D-Day invasion, in real time almost exactly how the reports were heard 63 years ago. It will begin at 12:41 am Eastern time on Channel 4, The 40s, to correspond when the actual first reports were going live.

In addition to the actual reports and updates from the war, there will be era music and commentary about the day from members of NBC's news staff.
