Anacortes Museum

Facebook event

Join the Anacortes Museum Saturday, January 19, 2019 for a free listening event featuring vintage phonograph records and radio shows. Staged as a guided DJ’d event, our ears will time travel to the ‘30s,‘40s, and ‘50s, to encounter the popular music, news, and stories that captivated Pacific Northwesterners long ago. This event is for kids ages 12 and up, teens, seniors, audiophiles, jazz enthusiasts, and those who love listening to a good story. 

The 90 minute program occurs at 3pm and at 7 p.m.  More info here

The event is free but space is limited, so reservations are required. Please RSVP by emailing or calling (360) 293-1915. 

This program is funded with support from the Manieri Endowment through the Anacortes Public Library Jazz and the Anacortes Museum Foundation.
