With the future of NIST radio stations #WWV and #WWVH in question, it's a good time to flash back to my decades-long research project (1992-present) preserving their sound and history. Here’s a #leapsecond announcement reel from December 1977. . . . .

Does anyone know Mr. B.P.C Holdsworth? I seem to have picked up his Rural Broadcaster’s Manual @abchobart @ntcountryhour .
.
It is incredibly comprehensive.

I walked this morning on the Vulcan Trail which is just down the kudzu-covered north side of Birmingham's Red Mountain from FOX 6, where I made my broadcast debut many decades ago. My memory is vague as I was only 5 but, according to family legend, I interrupted kiddie show host Benny Carle by repeatedly yelling "I wanna say something!" while he was live on air. He called me over to his desk and asked "Okay what do you want to say?" to which I replied "I done forgot!" (Again, that's according to family legend.) Honestly, the only recollection I have of the event is the image of the cone-shaped microphone with the round base on Benny Carle's desk. #wbrc @wbrcnews #birminghamalabama #birmingham #yourclearpicturestation #broadcasthistory #bennycarle #circlesixranch #redmountain #vulcan #vulcantrail #kudzu #television #earlyTV #familyhistory

Scottish inventor and engineer John Logie Baird demonstrates his ‘televisor’, a receiver for a mechanical system of television transmission involving a spinning disc, in June 1926. 
Baird had successfully presented his invention to the world just a few months earlier, on 26 January 1926. Swipe ⬅️ for a glimpse of the first ever image to be transmitted this way in public; a ghostly face which was to evolve into television, transforming modern life.

79 years ago tonight, Orson Welles broadcast his 'War of the Worlds' radio drama on the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network as part of his anthology series 'The Mercury Theatre on the Air'. An adaptation of the 1898 H.G. Wells novel of the same name.

A large portion of the show involved news broadcasts interrupting "regularly scheduled" music to report on explosions on Mars, as well as an unidentified object crashing into a field in New Jersey. What followed was a full blown alien invasion.

Many accounts claim that the broadcast led to widespread panic, but some consider this to be an exaggeration. The radio drama did begin with a disclaimer that it was a work of fiction, though some believe that many listeners tuned into the broadcast after the caveat, having previously been listening to another program by host Edgar Bergen. Whatever really happened, it's a damn cool yarn to think about. Happy Halloween!

Artist: Avim Corrêa (1908)

Here is a neat little piece of radio 📻 history: The Philco 42-340 Tube Radio. Produced in Philadelphia by Philco, the leader of the radio industry at the time,  between 1941–1942 only, with 26,750 radios made, this was what many Americans used to listen to classic radio programming like Red Ryder, The Cisco Kid, The Army Hour—and other WWII news programs. .

75 years ago today three scheduled NFL games were under way when the Japanese first attacked Pearl Harbor at 12:55 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, December 7, 1941. 
Fans listening to their radios heard this At approximatley 2:26 p.m. EST, when WOR broke into their coverage of the New York Giants vs. The Brooklyn Dodgers football game for this brief report of Press Secretary Steve Early's announcement.

The fans in attendance heard the The public address announcer at New York’s Polo Grounds, where they were celebrating “Tuffy Leemans' Day” in honor of their star running back, interrupted his commentary to tell all servicemen to report to their units.

The same was done at Chicago’s Comiskey Park. At Washington’s Griffith Stadium, the announcer paged high-ranking government and military personnel who were in attendance, but did not mention the attack. Reporters were told to check with their offices.

Let us remember all those who lost their lives 75 years ago today at Pearl Harbor.

What a friend Marshmallow Fluff had in Marjorie Mills! The first female reporter for the Boston Herald Traveler and a New England radio pioneer. She endorsed lots of products but for Marshmallow Fluff she had a special rapport, appearing in large print ads, making in-store appearances and spending time with her friends at the Durkee-Mower factory. Here she is in 1940 at the Yankee Network studios. #marshmallowfluff #showusyourfluff #bostonhistory #WNAC #yankeenetwork #broadcasthistory #bostonherald #bostonheraldradio

This photo was taken on Wednesday, #September 4, 1940 at the #KYW #Radio transmitter site in #WhitemarshTownship, #Pennsylvania. That location is #northwest of #Philly, not far from #PlymouthMeeting.

At the time of this picture, #KYWRadio operated on 1020 on the AM dial. It moved to its familiar 1060 location on the AM dial in spring of 1941. You can see two of the #station's remote #broadcasting vehicles. The shot also shows one of the four wooden tower bases with steel masts that supported the station's directional array. #broadcasthistory #philadelphia #broadcastpioneersofphiladelphia #broadcast #communications #historian #backintheday

Our #WCW is media mogul Dorothy Bullitt. In the fledgling days of radio and TV, there was no one more powerful in the Pacific Northwest than Dorothy Bullitt. When she died on June 27, 1989, she had amassed the most valuable privately held media company on the West Coast! In the 1930’s, she purchased a small radio station, rebranded it KING and directed that it only play classical music (it remains one of the top 5 classical stations in the US). Later she bought the only TV station in the Northwest and became the first woman in America to buy and manage a TV station. She was a true pioneer!
