Sixteenth Anniversary of RCA

Sixteenth Anniversary of RCA

Broadcast: October 13, 1935
Added: Sep 25 2018

We hear first from Edward Beattie, reporting from the fighting front in Ethiopia, the first reporter to report from Addis Ababa. Next up is the acknowledgement of RCA's 16th birthday, and also the start of radio, which first happened on a peaceful farm in Italy when Marconi sent and received an electric wave over a distance of a mile and a half. Astonishing to think how far radio came from there!
