The Turlock Historical Society is pleased to announce that an Exhibit entitled “Radio Legends” will be on display at the Museum from February 14 to April 30, 2011. The exhibit contains significant vintage equipment, antique radios and historical information about the people and events involved in the development of radio technology.
The Society is grateful to eight collectors and members of the Central Valley Chapter of the California Historical Radio Society for providing the interesting and educational display.

They are asking for the public’s help in locating artifacts, memorabilia and verbal accounts relating to local radio history. Interested persons can visit the Central Valley Chapter’s website, www.cvantiqueradio.com or contact Richard Lane at 209-605-0290.
