Radio Girls Artwork (Detail)

Join the Broadcast Legends for lunch on Friday, March 18, at the Basque Cultural Center in South San Francisco for a fascinating discussion about radio in its very earliest days — nearly a century ago!

Radio Boys and Girls book cover (Mike Adams)Our guest speaker will be Mike Adams, Professor Emeritus at San Jose State University, member of the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame (Class of 2011) and author of several essential volumes on broadcasting history, including “The Radio Boys and Girls: Radio, Telegraph, Telephone and Wireless Adventures for Juvenile Readers, 1890-1945,” which will provide the basis for our program.

Radio in 1922: What the Boys and Girls Knew,” looks at a single year and compares the rise in broadcasting, and what Americans were being told about its significance, with the information young readers were getting in their Radio Boys and Radio Girls series books. The year 1922 was an important one in the transition from the dots and dashes of the wireless hobby to the radio as a source of entertainment and information.
