Since its inception, radio has been a powerful tool for information, entertainment, and public safety. This year marks the centennial of Washington’s first licensed radio stations which went on the air from Seattle to Spokane and Pullman to Olympia in 1922.

Come to History Café to discuss some of the pivotal moments in Washington radio history, and explore the ways in which public broadcasting has helped underserved communities throughout our state.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning is available during the program through generous support of the Institute for Museum and Library Services. For additional accessibility support, please contact [email protected].

History Café is produced as a partnership between MOHAI and HistoryLink. Join MOHAI and HistoryLink on the third Wednesday of the month for a discussion about local history—both popular and obscure—and discover something new.

Detailed information on how to participate will be provided via email following your registration.
