“Radio Day ON The Bay 2021 – LIVE! Aboard The USS Hornet is Coming! It was quite a letdown when we cancelled Radio Day in October, but it was the wise thing to do. The problem was the close quarters in the Veterans Auditorium and Radio Central.

Now we will be holding Radio Day on the Hornet where there is plenty of room to spread out. It will be on the enormous hanger deck. It’s covered but has huge doors that open for plenty of fresh air. It will be a holiday themed program. And hopefully by December, the Covid will be better. All of our favorites are back.

Hot Add!! The Bay Area Broadcast Legends will join us for Radio Day! The Legends will present a vintage radio newscast AND, Mr. Ben Fong-Torres, (BARHOF Class of 2010), will entertain with some holiday music. Plus the auction, the awards and more. Additional details to follow. Plus we will have our Donation Fullment Center where for a donation to CHRS, you will receive a beautiful, restored vintage radio. Most of these antiques are equipped to play your music from your phone or other music players. These sets are perfect holiday gifts. Take a few home for family and friends.

OK, Save the date… December 18th… On the Hornet. How cool is that? Stay tuned and watch this space for more details. This event will be lots of fun. Plan to be there.

Note: Usually when CHRS hosts Radio Day, we charge a $10 entrance donation. This time, the Hornet’s usual entrance fees apply. They are: $20 for Adults – $15 for seniors, students or veterans – $10 for Juniors – And children under 6 are Free. Not only are these admissions to the Radio Day events, you are also entitled to enjoy the gigantic, historic Hornet including tours of the ship. What a great experience and a great value.

At this time vaccines or negative test and masks will be required, but that my change. Stay tuned.

It would be impractical to hold our giant surplus sale on the Hornet. So, on Saturday, October 23rd, we will have a regular Members Swap Meet starting at 9am and at 10am we will open the gate and our enormous surplus sale will begin. It’s all outside and all good.
