ok, here is Johnny’s quick history lesson…The almost magical relationship between electricity and magnetism that is RADIO owes its existence to visionaries that include Hans Christian Ørsted, André-Marie Ampère, Joseph Henry, Michael Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell, David Edward Hughes, Guglielmo Marconi, Nikola Tesla, Reginald A. Fessenden and the amazingingly underrated Edwin Howard Armstrong – who invented frequency modulation – more commonly known as FM Radio.
By 1910 these various wireless systems had come to be referred to by the common name “radio” and the world was never going to be the same again! Early radios were valve powered, large and expensive. In the 1950s, the increasing use of Transistors saw the price and size of radios fall dramatically…just in time for the advent of Rock’n Roll. Radio quickly became the conduit connecting a whole generation and the music has kept playing ever since.
In spite of the various forms of media available today, radio, with its unique presence, remains as one of the best and most popular ways to connect with the world. Radio can only be experienced in real time, where new music and engaging conversations between interesting personalities are shared.
