The Kirk Collection

Dec 20, 2013

The 300-piece Kirk collection at WFSU includes radios from the turn of the century through the mid-50’s, televisions and musical instruments.  Kirk’s collection began when he thought he was buying an antique jewelry box, but it turned out to be a 1932 Emerson radio that was “falling apart”.  Once repaired, it became the first of hundreds of pieces crammed into a museum in the studios of WMOP-AM in Ocala, Florida which Kirk owned from 1963-93.
