Officers & Board of Directors
The Modesto Radio Museum foundation was formed in 2004 comprised of current and past men and women with local broadcasting experience. The original idea for the museum came in 2004, when Harry Pappas, owner of the original KTRB property on Norwegian Ave in Modesto, contacted Wes Page, Cecil Lynch and Cal Purviance with the idea to build a museum dedicated to preserving the history of commercial broadcasting in Modesto and the area.
The goal was to increase and preserve the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their efforts and the equipment they used beginning in 1933 when KTRB signed on the air in Modesto.
The Board of the museum elected to continue the museum project as a virtual (on-line) museum only. This website was established in 2004.
The Board officers: President John Chappell, 1st Vice President Wes Page, 2nd Vice President, Steve White and Secretary Jerry Moore.
Board of Directors: John Chappell, Bob Pinheiro, Derek Waring, Jerry Moore, Bob De Leon, Dennis Larson, Rick Myers and Bob Neira.
