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.

Fans of Ed Walker 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.

Very exciting news - for the first time we have a video of the Joy Boys in action!  This is from their last show on WRC radio, October 1972.  Thanks to Tom Buckley, Dave Statter, Bob Bell, and YouTube for making this long-lost clip available to our visitors.

This clip is part of the final show, and we have the entire show (audio) available on our CDs JB106, JB107, and JB108.  Find these and other CDs on our Audio page.

And please keep those cards, letters, and tapes coming!
