Where to find full recordings of FDR fireside chats?

Where can I download FDR's 'fireside' weekly radio addresses?

One can find a catalog of recorded utterances at the FDR library, short snippets at the Museum of Broadcast Communications but I am trying to find a full series of the radio addresses. Anyone have any ideas? Bonus for any full radio news programs from the 1930s-1942.

The Googleable phrase you want for the second half of your question is "old time radio."

Here's some OTR news from Archive.org. Here's some more. More still. And some more.

The fireside chats wiki page turns up Fireside chats and speeches from The Miller Center.

Hit post too soon. The chats are downloadable, but it looks like you need to click through to the individual recordings.
