to one of the largest collections of radio broadcasting in the world. Here you find thousands of scripts, recordings, photographs and much more. Already outgrowing our current space, the archives will nearly double with the addition of the collections owned by Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters. Consequently, we have developed plans for a new building which will provide the needed space, and also a museum area to display these marvelous materials. See the American Radio Archives web site for more information.
The Thousand Oaks Library catalog can be used to search for print materials and scripts in the American Radio Archives.
The American Radio Archives include: scripts, sound recordings, books, photographs, personal papers, correspondence, and other materials that vividly reflect the history of radio and television broadcasting. Although the Archives primarily follow radio history, some cross-over with television is inevitable as many radio shows continued into television, and many radio professionals went on to work in television.
