SOME RADIO DETAIL FOR THE INTERMINABLY CURIOUS…
RADIO-DEVELOPMENT HISTORY FOR CURIOUS PEOPLE
Behind this page are hundreds of multimedia files describing the formation and development of pioneer radio stations and early networks…stories told in the publications of the day, and now tap/click accessible.
A treasure trove is David Gleason’s labor of love: AmericanRadioHistory.com On our pages we’re a bit more granular; presenting selected documents, pictures and sounds from radio trade publications and station histories. We’ve also tapped hobbyists, enthusiasts and contributors like yourselves who are fascinated by broadcasting’s formative years. A good deal of new material will be found here from my own collection on radio and technology. And we’ve included material from private libraries and the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting. Finally, we’re indebted to John Schneider for his excellent pages at http://www.theradiohistorian.org/
The Info Categories will take you to topic pages. Throughout the site, use Search functions to spot multimedia items of specific interest. Finally, check out an eclectic page (“Knowledge, Theory, Practice“) that may be of passable interest to today’s curious Technologist/Citizen.
