Also still going on, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the march, WGBH in Boston is broadcasting its original coverage of the event. From the station:

The coverage began at 9am and continued for 15 uninterrupted hours (until midnight), and was heard live on WGBH; a member of the network and an active participant in the broadcast. Only WGBH retained the original broadcast materials, and we are proud to present them here — unedited and in real-time — on this milestone anniversary of the March On Washington.

You can listen to the webcast in progress here or by clicking on the image below.
