Bay Area Radio People

Exhibits listed alphabetically by last name

The Bay Area has been truly blessed by the radio talent that we’ve enjoyed over the years. Whether your tastes run to Frank Dill, Don Sherwood, Al Hart, Sly Stone, M. Dung, Tall Tom Campbell, Jim Dunbar, Merv Griffin, Dr. Don Rose, Jim Lange, Bobby Ocean, Red Blanchard, Tom Donahue, Dave Diamond, Alex Bennett, Gene Nelson, Renel, Art Linkletter, Don Bleu, Super Snake, Bill King, Les Malloy, Bwana Johnny, Buddy Baron, Ronn Owens, Jumpin’ George Oxford, Tommy Saunders, Mel Venter or any of the thousands of voice that have graced our local airwaves, the Bay Area Radio Museum is continually creating new exhibits that feature the men and women that you loved to listen to, and some that you may never have had the opportunity to experience before. We hope you enjoy these classic broadcasts from voices both famous and forgotten.

EXCEPTION: In cases where a radio personality used only a nickname on the air, look under the first letter of that name.
EXAMPLE: Look under R for Dr. Don Rose; look under B for Bwana Johnny or F for Father Harry.
