Oldest Radio Station Celebrates Its Sixteenth Anniversary

Only sixteen years ago the first regular entertainment program by wireless was broadcast. Program broadcasting originated with Station WWJ of the Detroit News in 1920, and at a sixteenth anniversary program in August one of the speakers was Dr. Lee De Forest, pioneer inventor of the industry, who talked over the original transmitting equipment he had devised.
