Hearing America: A Century of Music on the Radio

According to popular history, one hundred years ago this Christmas Eve, shipboard technicians listening for Morse code messages on their newly installed wireless telegraphs heard something incredible: music. Men on ships from the North Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico made up the audience of the first successful radio transmission of music and voice. Since that first experimental broadcast, music has been the dominant sound on radio.
