I paid a visit yesterday to The Museum of Broadcast Communications (Chicago) where all the great communicators of the world -- from Mike Wallace to Larry King to Bill Kurtis -- are featured and honored.

The mission of MBC is:
The mission of the Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) is to collect, preserve, and present historic and contemporary radio and television content as well as educate, inform, and entertain the public through its archives, public programs, screenings, exhibits, publications and online access to its resources.
The photo you see above is that of an amazing Media Tower at MBC made up of old radios, televisions, computers and so forth.  Fascinating. It's located at the top of the staircase from the front entrance to the museum.  Admission is free from January 25th-February 28th.
