KVZI Roi-Namur

KVZI-FM broadcast at 97.9 FM in the 1970's on Roi-Namur island, near Kwajalein, in the Marshall Islands, then part of the US Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.

Late in 1975, Shermie & Friends Band were hosted on the island by KVZI-FM and this image shows the group arriving at Roi-Namur and holding KVZI-FM welcoming signs.

From top to bottom, Lijon MacDonald, Shermie Wiehe, Brian Buckley, Mary Couture, Harold Lakabun, Keju Balos, Milung [Terry] Anitak, Maria Laina, Alwin Poun.

KVZI-FM was still broadcasting some 30 years later.

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.
