This future exhibit, spearheaded by Chicago broadcasting executives John Gehron/AccuRadio, Lisa Miller/Miller Broadcast Management, and Harv Blain/Vallie Richards Donovan Consulting, will highlight nearly 40 years of “Radio’s Best Friend” Art Vuolo’s recordings of on-air banter and a behind-the-scenes look at over 700 Disc Jockeys from coast to coast, including many of radio's most creative personalities.

Art Vuolo said, “I am honored to present my video library to The National Radio Hall of Fame at The Museum of Broadcast Communications and am absolutely overwhelmed with the support of the radio industry.”

This radio treasure trove of over 1,000 videos will be available for viewing at the Museum for aspiring radio talent, management and students along with fans, friends, family and the curious; all of whom will get a rare look into people behind the mic. Videos of the personalities will also be available for purchase.

National Radio Hall of Fame Chairman Kraig Kitchin remarked, “The trust Art Vuolo created between himself and hundreds of radio personalities while capturing their on air magic in video form has turned into a treasure trove of memories everyone should be able to see. Many personalities are in the National Radio Hall of Fame; many more are deserved of nomination. The collection of work should be heard and seen by all who are interested.”
