Podcast 36 - Radios and Ancestors - first part - FREE

August 27, 2017

In honor of National Radio Day (August 20th), Gena and Jean discuss the effects radio had on generations of decades past, the transition of radio to television to computer as news media, and some of the uniqueness of radios. The second half (not included here) includes a discussion of news, sports, and entertainment programs, as well as advertisements, that came into the home via the medium of radio. To access that, subscribe at this same website for a Premium subscription. The photo included here was the ham radio set operated by Roy Wilcox of Wilmette, Illinois in the mid-1920s through the 1930s.
