Hiroshima Atomic Bomb
Nagasaki bombIn an attempt to secure the Japanese surrender in WWII, the US utilized an atomic weapon to bomb Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.  Three days later on August 9, 1945, the US dropped another atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Nagasaki.  On August 10, 1945 it was assumed by the American Media that Japanese surrender was inevitable.  As a result, stations began transcribing their broadcasts in hopes of recording that historic day. 

However, the Japanese did not surrender on August 10, 1945; they surrendered 5 days later on August 15th, 1945.  Station WEAF began transcribing their broadcast under the assumption of the end of the war, but after realizing that was not the case.  This recording is a significant part of American history as it reflects the tension as we teetered at the end of WWII.
