San Francisco Bay Area radio fanatics will be in 7th heaven tomorrow, when a bunch of California Historical Radio Society (CHRS) events are taking place. The morning starts with a vintage radio swap meet in Berkeley at the historic KRE building beginning at 9am. Then, from 11:30am to 3:00pm the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame induction luncheon will take place at Spenger’s Restaurant in Berkeley. Hosted by the CHRS and the Broadcast Legends, the ceremony will honor the 2013 inductees into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame. Reservations are required. Following the luncheon, attendees will migrate back over to KRE for an open house and after party from 3-5pm. Guests will be invited to tour through the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame exhibit and the CHRS museum.
If you’ve never been to the KRE building in Berkeley, it’s well worth a visit to see the incredible collection of radio artifacts housed there. I’ve been there for a couple of Radio Day by the Bay events and found it hard to leave because there was so much to take in!
