 Cincinnati Radio, my Arcadia book of photographs from Cincinnati's first 50-years of radio,






Thanks for visiting.  I've been professionally involved in radio in Cincinnati for 35-years now and am enjoying my time on 89.3 WMKV.  The first nearly two decades were happily spent at WVXU, when it was a part of Xavier University.  It was during that tenure that I became involved in learning about broadcast history--particularly the history of Cincinnati radio and television.   Starting around 1999, I began interviewing the remaining pioneers that I could find for various history projects and documentaries.  Today, that education continues because there's no possible way to "know it all."


Thanks to a great family and wonderful peers, the mission continues with Media Heritage, a non-profit archive and library of radio and television history.  It's sort of an "expensive hobby."    Information at!


I'm always eager to learn something new, so if you have a story feel free to drop me a line!


For starters, here is a brief timeline of some of the events related to Cincinnati's radio and television history. How many have you read about? What memories do you have? Cincinnati Timeline This website is a work in progress. I've never done such a thing before, so excuse my unprofessionalism. Hopefully, improvements will come in time!
