These recordings consist primarily of Sunday morning religious radio programs hosted by Austin Coleman and sponsored by the Ragsdale Mortuary and the Valley Life Insurance Company.  Many of these programs were recorded to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Broadcasts feature Christian and gospel music, advertisements for the Ragsdale mortuary and insurance businesses, and political and social commentary by Lincoln Ragsdale, Eleanor Ragsdale, and many others.
