“Rock the Radio,” the National VOA Museum of Broadcasting’s third annual fundraiser, was held Sept. 22 at the museum in West Chester. Patrons enjoyed dinner and dancing to music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, with VOA commentary provided by emcee Jim Scott, 700 WLW-AM’s radio host for 47 years. Proceeds will help make the museum first floor accessible to all museum patrons.
