Sacramento Rock and Radio Museum Interview with Dennis Newhall
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on May 13, 2013

The Sacramento Rock and Radio Museum is now open for the public every Second Saturday through October. The non-profit museum has been a treat to fans of rock and roll memorabilia for over a decade. The museum, located at 911 20th Street, showcases a wide range of rock concert posters, documenting local music history. You will also find logos of radio stations of the past that helped popularize rock, such as KZAP, KROY and KSFM (Earth Radio). This SacTV video features an interview of museum curator Dennis Newhall, who worked for KZAP, KROY and KSFM.

The memorabilia naturally triggers stories about local history, such as the Rolling Stones visits in 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1969 or when the Beach Boys recorded a live album at the Memorial Auditorium. The museum also brings back memories of local venues such as Oasis Ballroom. Dennis says his favorite artifact is a poster for Cream and the Grateful Dead playing at the Orangevale Grange Hall, which was not typically used for rock concerts. Dennis also mentions how The New Breed were the top local band in the mid-sixties. The band did not rise to national fame, but bass player Timothy B. Schmit went on to play for the Eagles and Ringo Starr's All Star Band. Check out a virtual tour of the museum here.
