August 20th National Radio Day

We celebrate the invention of the radio today. It was generally accepted that Guglielmo Marconi invented the radio in the 1890’s but that seems to be in question today. While it is true the idea of transmitting a signal and receiving that signal was worked on for years we know only that the radio was made affordable in the mid-1900’s and served as an entertainment and news format. The radio is becoming less popular today as technology moves forward but there will always be a place for what Marconi, or whoever, created the radio.

How to celebrate – Listen to the radio. Build your own radio. Become a DJ.
