Mike Kronforst states this photo does not pertain to the Pavek Hall of Fame event. However, it's a shot of Mike Kronforst's spouse, Gloria that was taken in her home Christmas, 1945. Mike states "It's obvious even at that early age that she'd marry a "Radio" guy. We've been married over 42 years."

Mike Kronforst of Brown College attended the diner and provided the photos on the left. Here is the email he sent:
Attached are a couple shots taken at the Pavek Museum Hall of Fame Induction Dinner this past Saturday evening in the Twin Cities.
First shot shows Chuck Knapp and Dan Donovan. Chuck introduced Dan who was inducted into the Hall.
Second shot is of your truly and Lou Waters formerly of CNN and before that he was Lovable Lou Riegert at KDWB back in the early 60's.
If you're a real junkie, and I know you are, I'm pretty sure the Pavek has the whole evening available on their website.

The airchecks on this not for profit web site were recorded off the air. The recordings on this site provide historical examples of Twin Cities radio and are intended for purposes of archival preservation and for research. Additionally, the recordings can be used by vision impaired visitors to get an audio perspective of radio history. These recordings are not intended to by used by others for commercial purposes.
Some of the airchecks are off reel to reel tapes that were recorded off the air by the web site creator. In May 2006 the recordings started to be converted to MP3 and shared here. In addition to this web site creator's recorded aircheck collection, there are also many airchecks that were recorded and submitted by friends and acquaintances, or contributed by other collectors. Sources are cited, if known. The contributed recordings from friends and contributors of both airchecks and other material are greatly appreciated. Without their help, the site would have many less pages of radio history. The recordings of the contributors to this web site who recorded them off the air may show up on other sites. This site does not charge any fees to listen to the posted recordings. The purpose of this site is to provide radio history and intended for purposes of archival preservation and research.
Windows Media Player works well to play these MP3 files, and depending on your internet settings, will start streaming the file once the link is clicked, Some files are large and may take time to open. Should you have any aircheck of Twin Cities radio stations, let me know and I may be able to include them at this site.
