About the 2019 Signature Exhibit

Radio employs the magic of sound by harnessing the electromagnetic radiation around us. The impact of radio is immeasurable. It has the power to elect political figures into office, it influences consumers to purchase certain products, it shapes new ideas and spreads news to mainstream America and it brings pleasure to audiences all over the world. “Don’t Touch That Dial: 100 Years of Radio” will feature over one hundred historic radios, components and ephemera. Visitors to this interactive exhibit will have a chance to listen to early broadcasts, see an Amateur Radio operator’s station, test their knowledge of Morse Code, and experience modern day innovations in the industry.

With a sophisticated and soothing style, Corinne Mammana is an American jazz singer, songwriter, arranger, recording artist and bandleader. She is praised by JazzTimes for her "superb technique." Her debut EP 'Under an August Moon' celebrates the Great American Songbook via a four-song collection of jazz standards from the 40s and 50s, as well as contemporary songs.
