The Long Island Radio and TV Historical Society (LIRTVHS) was established to preserve the rich and diverse history of wireless communication, radio and TV on Long Island NY.
Long Island Radio and Television Historic Sites
The Long Island Radio and Television Historical Society (LIRTVHS) is constantly researching and documenting Long Island’s radio and TV history. Unfortunately, many sites no longer physically exist, from the early shacks of the American Marconi Company to big operations such as RCA’s Radio Central in Rocky Point, to the small electronics stores that populated main streets throughout the Island. We share what we find in a number of ways, from our Distant Sparks newsletter to our Radio Tower podcast to frequent exhibits and displays at Brookwood Hall and elsewhere. If you have information or a story about radio/television history you’d like to share, contact us!.
