The San Francisco Bay Area is a diverse region, and it has been the home of a diverse assortment of radio stations of varying musical styles with air personalities to meet any taste. The Bay Area Radio Museum presents exhibits dating back to the origins of broadcasting in the Bay Area, to its days as a network hub for West Coast programming and for news from the Pacific Theater during World War II, on to the emergence of Top 40 during the 1960s and talk radio in the 1980s and 1990s.
