The Croatian American Radio Club is a non-profit organization founded by a group of enthusiasts whose desire was to preserve the Croatian word and heritage.
During a social gathering on January 26, 1935 at the home of Ivan Majdak, a discussion was held about Croatian cultural and benevolent organizations in Chicago. During their discussions it was agreed that a radio program spoken in Croatian would benefit the Croatian-Americans living in Chicago.
At the next gathering on February 16, 1935, Ivan Majdak suggested that the name of the organization be “The Croatian American Radio Club of Chicago”. The name was accepted and by-laws were written.
The fundamental purpose of the Club was to be a link between Croatians, remaining non-political, promoting the Croatian language, songs, cultural traditions, and ethnic heritage.
