AN AMERICAN TREASURE


DIAGRAM OF AMPLIFIER COMPLETLY ASSEMBED
As many of you know, I specialize in finding old American reporting pictures and stories of long ago that have been overlooked, seldom found and rarely read. Here are three stories entitled AN AMPLIFID FOR YOUR RADIO, RADIO JACKS and HOW A BROADCASTING STATION IS RUN by Herbert D. Miller (formerly Broadcasting Director of WGI) as published in this old American magazine in 1915. The diagram and descriptions and instructions on how to assembed an ampliefier and radio jacks intially caught my attention. These descriptions are highly technical and way beyond my expertise. However, the third item is a look back into the time of the first radio stations and how to run them. Great fun read. i.e. The Government required local stations back 82 years ago to heed SOS signals from ships by listening three minutes out of every 15 minutes. They were also required to stand by at five minutes of eleven o'clock in the evening to let the time signals from Washington go through. On one evening in question, both of these events occurred as a lovely singer finished one of her numbers at about that time. The announcer went to the microphone and without thinking how what he was going to say would sound said, "You have just heard Miss Jones sing. We will now stand by for time and distress calls". You can imagine the singer ws not flattered! Great fun read. The pages are 11 by 14 inches -- in great condition. Some of you might have this great story for framing or placing it on your coffee table.

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL PIECE 82 YEARS OLD.

Please check our feedback because this is the real pleasure I receive from finding a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hours but OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD ORIGINAL AMERICAN RADIO REPORTING HISTORY.
