The biggest annual event in Bay Area broadcasting is back as the California Historical Radio Society (CHRS) and the Bay Area Radio Museum & Hall of Fame (BARHOF) celebrate Radio Day By The Bay on the lovely isle of Alameda on Saturday, July 20.
Radio Day By The Bay is a chance for fans to tour CHRS’ museum, Radio Central, and to rub elbows with local radio personalities while checking out the vintage radios, watching a live radio drama being performed onstage, listen to live music — and perhaps bring home a classic radio in our fundraising auction.
In addition, the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 will be announced.
