Much of this site is given over to fun stories about the early history of radio. While the 'radio story'
actually begins circa 1600 (!), the focus on these pages is on the years of radio's growth (1900 to 1950).
Tracks of interest are found on the RADIO page.
Drill down to stories about radio stations, large and small. Extra attention is paid to WCCO as
an example of how one station developed its facilities over the years.
Soon you'll find a multi-media educational presentation on "RADIO AS A WORLD POWER",
beginning with the earliest sound-recording technologies and relating how their advancement made
it possible for the human voice to be heard by millions, via "the Wireless." This presentation also
examines radio's role in reporting WW II, through the voices of the news-makers and reporters.
Selected columns from the DX AUDIO SERVICE will relate how AM stations made their way
around the band and survived the arcane and arbitrary rule-changes from the FCC.
Many magazine articles are provided courtesy of the PAVEK MUSEUM OF BROADCASTING.
Other information is from the Web and from hobbyists, enthusiasts, experimenters and other folks
who lived the formative years of broadcasting and audio recording.
