The Indiana School of the Sky radio program of the Indiana University Department of Radio and Television began broadcasting educational radio programs in 1947 and continued through the early 1960s. The program reached schools throughout Indiana and nearby states and led to new course offerings at IU. Indiana University students performed in the radio programs originally intended for children ages 4-8 aired for 15 minutes during each school day. Eventually the popularity of the programs called for high school programming as well, and later adults also tuned into the programs. This collection contains recordings of these programs.

Bibliographical/Historical Note

The Indiana School of the Sky radio program was created by the Indiana University Department of Radio and Television. Between 1947 and the early 1960s, Indiana University's School of the Sky, in cooperation with regional radio stations and the Indiana Department of Education, broadcasted educational programs to thousands of classrooms in Indiana and nearby states during each school day. Each program aired on a different day of the school week for fifteen minutes and were performed by Indiana University students and eventually reached listeners across the country. The success of the program and its growth lead to new course offerings in radio and television at IU and an advanced radio broadcasting station at the university.
