On its recently launched You Tube channel, The California Historical Radio Society is archiving a treasure trove of materials related to radio history.

Included are some “Living History Series” interviews with radio luminaries like Carter B. Smith, Terry McGovern, Rosie Allen, Ben Fong-Torres and Stan Burford. Additional videos chronicle various events from Radio Day by the Bay (held at the historic KRE building in Berkeley) as well as a brief tour of some electronic artifacts (including radio equipment, vacuum tubes, and espionage tools) housed in the Perham Foundation’s collection, and a demonstration of the restoration of a 1930s transmitter.
