Media Preservation Foundation
About Us
Media Preservation Foundation (MPF) is a Delaware non-profit corporation organized in 1995. MPF has been headquartered in the Springfield, MA area since its incorporation.

Funded solely by donations and underwriting, MPF’s underlying mission is to preserve archival materials (recorded and printed) from local radio broadcast stations throughout the country with an emphasis on historic radio station ID jingles and station imaging. This history is now even more important than ever as we surpass the 100th anniversary of broadcast radio.
TRACY E. CARMAN, Executive Director & Trustee
Tracy is one of the founders of MPF and has served as its Executive Director and a Trustee since it's inception. Tracy has "hung around" radio stations since he was seven, and worked in the industry on-and-off since he was legally able to do so.

Tracy's expertise is related to media archives, particularly ID jingles from the fifties through the eighties. He's also an expert on transferring old media from long forgotten formats into the digital domain.
Peter has been involved since the inception of the Foundation and is an all-around expert in all-things-media. To list all of Peter's accomplishments would take pages and pages, so some highlights include:

Published author:
Airwaves of New York, Sweet Talkin' Guys (video documentary on the history of New York Radio) and several others.

Co-Producer: WABC's Annual Rewound Special... an annual onair special aired on WABC featuring historic airchecks of the radio station as aired back in the day.
Chuck has been involved since the inception of the Foundation, lending his expertise as a broadcast engineer for the last four plus decades to the Foundation. He has been a regional engineer for a nationwide broadcast conglomerate in addition to holding every position from radio station General Manager to On-Air Personality (Disk Jockey).
Chris is the most recent Trustee of the Foundation, but no stranger to the broadcast industry. While his current focus is on Broadcast Engineering, Chris also held positions as an On-Air Personality (Disk Jockey) before making the switch to broadcast management, having worked for several nationwide broadcast conglomarates.
