We've searched in our vaults and found a wonderful little booklet issued by HCJB 50 years ago when they celebrated their 25th anniversary.

Throughout 2006, we'll bring you these pages from the past, as our salute to HCJB.

This month, the scriptural foundations for HCJB, Silver Anniversay operations, and photos from 1931 and 1956.

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.
