The History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation
is pleased to announce our next Public Meeting, which is scheduled for Friday May 30, 2008 from 11:30-1:30 P.M. (Please note the earlier meeting time)
The meeting marks the Foundation's Two Year Anniversary and will take place at Smoky Mountain Pizza and Pasta located at 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise and includes a no-host lunch (you order off the menu).
The Program will feature excerpts from some of the Foundation's most recently acquired radio airchecks. We'll play some tapes from 50s, 60, and 70s, which will include something for everyone! Foundation Vice President Frank Aden Jr. will share some newly acquired information on Eastern Idaho Television. Foundation Webmaster and Journal Broadcast Group Radio Chief Engineer Rockwell Smith will bring KGEM's original application for 10,000 Watts, filed in the early 1950s and some aerial photos taken by Member R.W. Egelston that show the Cassia Street tower site!
You are urged to attend and bring anything you have to share with the group. An RSVP is not required for this meeting, and you don't have to purchase lunch, or be a member of the Foundation to attend. This is no charge to attend other than the cost of whatever you choose to order for lunch. The History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation is now 2 years old and has over 50 members, including Journal Broadcast Group, Peak Broadcasting, and Banks Broadcasting of Boise, owners of KNIN-TV, Channel 9. The Foundation also wishes to thank to Randy Hyatt, Darla, and Shawn Kimmel for hosting last month's meeting at Impact Radio Group in Nampa.
See you at 11:30 A.M. May 30th at Smoky Mountain Pizza and Pasta located at 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise!
