March Madness at the Museum

 

It’s Maddening to link these two photos:

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren was a big fan of Arkie's, and had him perform at his Inauguration as Gov. 1943

What’s the connection between a hillbilly band, and Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Honorable Earl Warren???    Before he became Chief Justice, he was Governor of California.  Before that, he was a loyal listener of KTRB.   The band is “Arkie and His Hillbillies.”    Earl Warren was such a big fan he had them perform at his Governor’s Inaugural Ball, January, 1943.  You can read all about it right here.

The Radio Museum went fishing, and caught a whale!

The KFRC Mobile Studio, lovingly called “The Sturgeon,” will soon make the Museum its permanent pond.
