Felix E. Grant Jazz Archives

Paul Anthony Collection

In August 2006, the Felix E. Grant Jazz Archives acquired a collection of commercial recordings from jazz music specialist and veteran radio broadcaster, Paul Anthony. The collection contains more than 5,100 LP records, almost entirely of American jazz artists of the mid- to late-20th century. The recordings were acquired throughout his extended career as a radio broadcaster, principally during the years in which he produced shows devoted to jazz for radio station WRC in Washington, DC (1966–1972); National Public Radio (1972–1979); and for radio station WGMS in Washington, DC (1980–1990).
