Excerpt from Wwj the Detroit News: The History of Radiophone Broadcasting by the Earliest and Foremost of Newspaper Stations; Together With Information on Radio for Amateur and Expert

It was Aug. 31, then, which marked the beginning of radiophone broadcasting by the press as a public service. The dream of actual vocal contact between points far distant and without any tangible physical union had come true on an astonishingly large scale. The public of Detroit and its environs was on that date made to realize that what had been a laboratory curiosity was to become a commonplace of everyday life, and that the future held extraordinary. Developments which would affect all society.

Every week day since that date, and latterly on Sun days, too, The News has broadcast a program to an ever increasing audience. There has been no interruption in this service and the programs have constantly become more extensive and elaborate.

At first the concerts were confined entirely to phono graph music. Two programs were broadcast daily - one at 11 30 a. M. And the other at 7 p. M. - and after a time, speakers and singers were occasionally obtained to enter tain the invisible audience.

Soon reports commenced coming in from outlying communities that the concerts were being successfully received and enthusiastically enjoyed. The radio has become such a familiar affair in so short a space of time that it seems odd to consider how remarkable this was regarded at the time. The thing from the first held the element 'of magic. The local receiving set became the center of wondering interest in the little suburban towns. The interest grew and dealers reported a demand for radio materials.
