Long Lost Radio History Images:
Radio Station KIBS Canton Island
Central Pacific 1952

Glenn Carpenter, who grew up on Canton Island in the 1950's where his father was also announcer on KIBS Radio, has shared this earlier photo of the station building shortly after construction. The vegetation seen in the color image from a little later has yet to take hold. The photo was taken by his grandmother Laura Olson Laswell, RN.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
