America’s Voice to the Pacific War: A Shortwave Station is Born at the Fair
A shortwave radio voice that began at the fair on Treasure Island proved vital to the war in the Pacific, and led to the formation of the Voice of America, the United States government broadcasting facility that has been heard worldwide since World War II.
Speaker: John Schneider, author of two books and dozens of magazine articles on radio history, and a Fellow in History of the California Historical Radio Society.
