As a fan of broadcast history (which often reads like tragedy, comedy, sometimes horror, or even a love story), I sometimes stumble across some neat historical videos or links connected to the early days of radio. Here are some of found and collected for sharing here in “Off the Beaten Path.”
Radio & TV in the 1940s
NBC Presents “Behind Your Radio Dial” (From About 1948)
The Beginning of Broadcast Radio
CBS — On The Air
And finally …
I thought this was kind of fun and cool. You enter your birthdate and get to hear (sometimes with video) your “Birthday Song” as presented by Billboard Magazine.
If you stumble across a good or unusual web site that might be of interest, please don’t hesitate to send me the link and any info you might have about it. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
