We are the Joy Boys of radio...
We chase electrons to and fro!

Click the Play button (triangle) below and sing along with the Joy Boys theme!

This site is dedicated to The Joy Boys, Ed Walker and Willard Scott, who entertained Washington DC listeners on WRC radio from 1955 to 1972. We also remember their years together on WWDC, WOL, and WMAL.  We have lots of pictures, stories, and sound clips from their shows over the years.

We've added a new video page with clips of the Joy Boys, Ed Walker, Ronald McDonald, and others. Click here or on the image below to go straight to it. The latest addition to that page is a rare stereo recording, a WRC station promo done by the Joy Boys.

Ed Walker's fans will be happy to hear this news: We recently received a large number of recordings of The Big Broadcast, which will be archived here and in several radio history museums and libraries. Click here for the details, including links to WAMU coverage of Ed's last show.
