About the Birmingham Black Radio Museum

As a radio broadcaster in Birmingham, Alabama, the BBRM's Director began amassing oral histories and ephemera in April of 1990. In June of 2004, the BBRM was incorporated as a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. The Birmingham Black Radio Museum chronicles and catalogs the history of Black radio in Birmingham from the mid 1930’s through the 1980’s. BBRM creates and makes available an interactive web-based archive for researchers and the public, and develops exhibition spaces for the BBRM collection and research center at the historic Carver Theatre, also the home of the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in downtown Birmingham.

Our collection is made available for individual and scholarly review by appointment. Contact the Director at 205-902-9487 or info@thebbrm.org

If you are interested in donating an oral history or object to the collection, donating funds for the preservation of the collections, or scheduling a viewing of A Radio Hero, a video retrospective of the history of Birmingham Black radio and the early life of Paul "Tall Paul" White, please contact The Birmingham Black Radio Museum at:
