History Café: The Democratizing Power of Radio


Wednesday May 18


6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

Since its inception, radio has been a powerful tool for information, entertainment, and public safety. This year marks the centennial of Washington’s first licensed radio stations which went on the air from Seattle to Spokane and Pullman to Olympia in 1922. Come to History Café to discuss some of the pivotal moments in Washington's radio history, and explore the ways in which public broadcasting has helped underserved communities throughout our state.

History Café is produced as a partnership between HistoryLink and MOHAI.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning is available during the program through generous support of the Institute for Museum and Library Services. For additional accessibility support, please contact programs@mohai.org.
