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 frequent exhibits and displays at Suffolk Community College and elsewhere. We will soon be compiling much of our information into an interactive online map so check back to see what’s new.
