Summertime, and the Cruising is Easy



First, a sad note:  The Museum mourns the passing of radio giant, and true friend, Robert Michael Salmon, owner of KMIX, AM&FM.  We present his life story .  If you knew Bob, we encourage your comments.




It’s that Graffiti Time of Year, which always brings the question, “Did Wolfman  Jack ever work in Modesto?? The Wolfman  was the soundtrack voice on the movie, “American Graffiti.” Through the years, “The Wolfman” appeared at several of Modesto’s famous Graffiti Weekends.   The Museum’s Derek Waring researched The Wolfman  in Modesto, and found photos, personal stories, and audio.   It’s all right here.  You’re Gonna Love it to Death, Baby:

Wolfman Jack, Did he Work in Modesto?

Along with the Wolfman, numerous celebrities have connections to Modesto.  You can read those stories in our Menu Category, The F.A.M.E. of Radio.

This year is the 50th Anniversary of the movie, “American Graffiti.”   Make plans to be in Modesto for Graffiti Weekend, June 9-10-11.  We’re bringing back some legendary DJs, and. . . The KFRC Sturgeon.
