Bay Area Radio Museum Saved, But Still Seeking Help

Bay Area Radio Museum Gets Reprieve

Bay Area Radio Museum Gets Reprieve

I was happy to read in Ben Fong-Torres’ Radio Waves column yesterday that the Bay Area Radio Museum has been saved.

As we reported earlier this month, the online-only museum had scaled back recently under mounting costs.

Well, not only has the California Historical Radio Society stepped up to provide some help; but the site’s hosting service also pitched in with some free bandwidth.

As with many ventures such as this, volunteer help is still needed and perhaps some of you radio fanatics out there might be willing to help with digitizing material, conducting research, and writing articles for the website. Of course they are also happy to accept cold, hard cash.

Take a look at the Bay Area Radio Museum’s website to learn more about San Francisco Bay Area radio history, listen to old airchecks, scan through vintage broadcast schedules, and peruse individual station histories (along with tales, photos, and miscellaneous artifacts).

    Hello: My name is Tim Welsh. I would like to get a picture of the the
    old KSFO art deco radio transmitter building on Islais Creek.San Francisco.
    Can this be viewed from the street? Is the building accessible? It has a wonderful history. Thank you in advance, if you have the time to reply
