About

The unique and extensive Lithuanian Radio audio archive accumulated in course of many years is being opened to the public.

Currently, audio material (Lithuanian history and its cultural heritage) preserved in the LR archives (about 40,000 hrs) includes the recordings on audio tapes and vinyl, dating from the beginning of the 20th century, through the Soviet period, and till present day of the independent Lithuania.

Today LR is in process of digitalizing its radio archives and saving on modern carriers, thus making them available to the public through the Internet access.

From now on, visitors entering the Lithuanian Radio virtual audio library are afforded an opportunity of getting a vast amount of knowledge on the historical-cultural heritage, which they can use for self-education, scientific research or creative activities.

The LR archive offers a large choice of music works, radio plays, fairy-tales for children, historical and culture programmes recorded at the LR Studio. The Archive also contains the latest live productions.

The project “Creation of the Lithuanian Radio Virtual Audio-library” is funded by the European Union and the Government of Lithuanian Republic.
