On the Air: Colorado’s Radio History
Mar 18, 2019
Lecture by Steven Conklin, Broadcast Pioneers of Colorado
The rich history of radio in Colorado is shared through the stories of many of the broadcast pioneers, including the dentist who put the state’s first commercial station on the air in his living room, the station owner who saved a landmark and the DJ who had a movie based on her story. Hear stories and sounds from nearly ninety years of radio, including news clips, jingles and the voices of DJs. Presenter Steve Conklin is president of the Broadcast Pioneers of Colorado, working to preserve the history of radio and TV.
