Could You Become a Radio Star?
By Alfred Albelli
If you have ability as an entertainer, along with a good radio personality, fame and fortune may await you if you can pass the radio audition test, as described here.
NO DOUBT everyone would get a great thrill hearing his name announced over a network of powerful broadcasting stations as the artist who will next entertain the vast multitudes of listeners-in with a song, a string of jokes, or a speech treating subjects of interest to the nation. And no doubt, also, everyone would get even a greater thrill out of receiving each month a salary and royalty check of the generous four-figure proportions that most radio entertainers pull down.
“TALK-BACK” for your RADIO (Jun, 1934)
This seems like it would be incredibly imprecise. It seems like if you wanted to cheat, you could abstain from pressing the first button and then press the second to vote. You would essentially get counted twice. Try that trick with a really powerful transmitter and you could probably throw the whole vote.
“TALK-BACK” for your RADIO
NO problem of the commercially sponsored radio broadcast is more vital than the determination of listener response. What percentage of people like a program and what per cent do not. If the president asked his radio audience to vote “yes” or “no” on an important question how valuable it would be if he could learn the trend of opinion on the topic by the next morning; and with no more trouble to the listener than the mere pushing of a button on his radio set.
Baby Broadcasting” – Original Baby Monitor (Nov, 1941)
Why don’t they just take their baby to the park with them instead? It has to be lighter than that receiver. And bringing a radio to the movies so other people can listen to your screaming baby is a swell idea.

This Baby Broadcasts When She Wants Attention. Mother And Father Can Hear Her On Their Own Portable Radio Set LITTLE Dianne Roxas is only two months old, but already she is a radio star in her own right. From the privacy of her pink and blue beribboned bassinet, she broadcasts daily over her own private “station,” airing her troubles over the ether to an “audience” distributed within a radius of a few blocks of her home in Brooklyn, N. Y. Little Dianne is probably the youngest “ham” radio operator in the world, having been at it ever since she was ten days old.
