Mel Freedman Interview

Mel Freedman, Uncle Mel, as he liked us to call him, was the engineer when I worked at KFIV. He was known for his cantankerousness which masked a loving and caring soul that subsequently became so evident. We remained friends over the years. I will miss our lunches and our drinks together Uncle Mel. Many of us were privileged to have you as a mentor and such a big part of our lives for so many years.

Mel was a Founding Board Member and the Secretary for the Modesto Radio Museum Foundation. He also belonged to the Central Valley Broadcasters (CVB) group.  Mel passed away January 11, 2017. He was a veteran of World War II and was laid to rest at the National Cemetery at Santa Nella, California.
