The Cold War Radio Museum  was launched online  in 2016 to preserve the history of political radio from World War II to the present.  It is also a virtual history museum about the victims of communism, the prisoners of the Soviet Gulag and the Chinese Laogai forced labor camps.

Through its online exhibitions , young Americans and audiences worldwide learn about communism and the importance of liberty, democracy and freedom of the press.  

Contributions of countless journalists and broadcasters who had waged decades-long informational struggle against communist censorship through such radio stations as the Voice of America (VOA), Radio Free Europe (RFE) and Radio Liberty (RL) are presented through historical exhibit items which have to be purchased from private individuals before they are forever lost.  

Some of these unique Cold War radio history memorabilia range in price from a few dollars to over $5,000. We need to buy them so they can be displayed  for future generations, or they may never be seen in public to tell and explain the story of how the peaceful struggle against communism was waged with shortwave radio broadcasts and still continues in some countries.

Any donation will help.  We are now looking to purchase two historically valuable items, one of which costs about $700 and another about $3,000.  The Cold War Radio Online Museum is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. All public donations will be used to purchase exhibit items and maintain our online presence and educational activities.

Let us know if you would like your name to be listed online to show our deep appreciation for your generosity.   Ted Lipien, Museum Director and former  Cold War Radio Broadcaster
