A Lively Experiment

Notes on collections and events at the RIHS

Rhode Island Radio Lecture on Thursday

MSS 1029, Box 1, Folder 4Despite being repeatedly and prematurely pronounced dead (at the hand of television, the internet, or whatever comes next), radio is still alive more than a hundred years after its birth.

This Thursday NERFC fellow Helen York will highlight the lives of two Rhode Island radio luminaries: Salty Brine and Warren Walden.

Full event details are available on our events calendar.

More information about Salty Brine is available in his Providence Journal obituary (which includes a slideshow of pictures through the years), and a quick overview with trivia is available through Quahog.org. Or you can stop in at the Library and view our collection of his papers. And for getting into the spirit of the times, Duke University’s collection of print radio advertising offers priceless items like “The Rainbow of Sound.”
