Friday's activities will commence at the crack of dawn with the parking lot swap meet, which runs to approximately 6:00 pm, please note that no selling will be allowed prior to Friday morning. The hospitality room will be open at 7:00 am with fresh coffee and rolls. Hot dogs with cookies and snacks will be available starting at 11:30am. The registration room, ably coordinated by Mary Farmer, opens at 10:00 am.

Radio Daze is co-sponsored by both the Antique Wireless Association (AWA) and the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting. The Pavek museum is located at 3515 Raleigh Avenue in St. Louis Park and will be open at 10:00 am sharp on Friday and again on Saturday for their annual garage sale along with this year's 'Special Events Station'. Make sure you are displaying your Radio Daze name tag for free admission.

This year's radio drawing features an all original, electronically restored Zenith 5S-127 Tombstone. Drawing tickets for the radio will be available in the registration room for $1.00 each. The drawing for the radio will be held at the beginning of Saturday afternoon's program. You need not be present to win.

The auction, which is always a highlight of Radio Daze, will be held 7:30 Friday evening with merchandise check in beginning at 5:30 pm and viewing at 6:30 pm. Once again, Ed Ripley will be put to task as auctioneer, with auction coordinator Don Hauff handling registration and check in.

Saturday will kick off with the parking lot swap meet followed by the radio contest, coordinated by Greg Farmer. Item check in for the contest will run from 9:00 am to 10:00 am with viewing from 11:30am to 12:30pm. We have added a new rotating theme category to the contest. The category for Radio Daze 2002 will be 'Emerson Radio'. A trip to the contest room always yields a surprise or two.

The Saturday luncheon runs from noon to 12:45 pm, the cost is $9.00 per person. The Saturday program begins at 1:00 pm and features nationally recognized film collector and historian, Bob DeFlores. With his talents in demand throughout the country, we are very fortunate to have Bob at Radio Daze. Don't cut your Radio Daze experience short by missing this fine presentation.
