The Rock and Radio Museum

For those of you who have not visited the Rock and Radio Museum downtown, you are missing a precious part of Sacramento music history. I visited the museum last 2nd Saturday cause that's when it is open to the general public. It's at 911 20th street, site of the old Crabshaw Corners and Oasis Ballroom. The Museum is just loaded with posters, handbills, LPs, 45s, T-shirts and other bits of music and radio memorabilia that has to be seen to be believed. All of this considerable treasure is beautifully displayed with loving care by the curtator and person who is mostly responsible for it's content, Mr. Dennis Newhall. Dennis has been on the music scene for years and brings his passion and experience to this project. If you remember concerts at the Alhambra, listening to the hits on KROY, and later the cool FM tunes on KZAP, or Earth Radio, if you ever went to a show at the Sound Factory, then you must see this exhibit. I even found a framed poster from my 10th year anniversary party when I worked at KZAP. That was 20 years ago. The above picture is Dennis and I. He has put a lot of work into this labor of love, you should really see a bit of our city's history and thank Dennis when you see him.
