[FEATURED EXHIBIT]

Hall of Fame The Bay Area Radio Museum and the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame, now programs of CHRS, were created in 2006 by David Jackson. David built an on-line archive second to none featuring the people, audio clips and stations that have made Bay Area Radio great. David has stepped down as BARM and BARHOF's Executive Director and Curator as he wishes to spend more time with his family and his businesses. CHRS expresses its' thanks and will miss David’s wit and his encyclopedia-like knowledge of Bay Area radio. CHRS is now pleased to announce that the new Executive Director and Curator of BARM and BARHOF is Mr. Len Shapiro. Len has been Associate Director of BARM for 7 years. Len started in Bay Area radio in 1966 doing production and live remotes. He has worked for KGNU, KPEN, on the air on KLOK and has done PR for various sports teams and venues. A great researcher, Len is looking forward to carrying on BARM’s tradition of bringing fresh audio and material to the site. Contact Len at: info@bayarearadio.org
