The California Historical Radio Society (CHRS) is hosting Radio Day by the Bay this Saturday, July 26 from 8am to 3pm in Alameda. Radio fans will get the chance to take a look at the new home for CHRS and for the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame, as some of the events will be held at its headquarters. Other festivities will take place up the street at the Kofman Auditorium at Alameda High School.
As with past Radio Day by the Bays, there will be a radio auction, an electronics flea market, and live entertainment. The Golden Gate Radio Orchestra will play vintage radio music and the Broadcast Legends will perform a live radio play. Additionally, the inductees into the 2014 Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame will be announced.
You may recall that the CHRS had to vacate its former Berkeley home after the building was sold. Radio Day by the Bay is always a fun time and this year should be a particularly celebratory event in light of the successful purchase of CHRS’ new building in Alameda.
