Note that titles sometimes vary, depending on who originally named the specific audio, based on what seemed to be the major topic of the show in question, or the taste-in-titling of the recorder regarding subject matter. In some cases, because the original audio’s title did not apply to the segment containing the story in question, or because I preferred something different I created my own title.
Most of the dates are consistent as given from format to format, although a few vary. For example, although most are dated by the original person who recorded it when it was broadcast live from WOR in New York, some seem to have been recorded and thus dated, from a rebroadcast at a later date. Over the years, a few dates have been altered based on newly discovered information that corrects earlier assumed dates.

More later, dude.
