NBC microphone“Only the Shadow Knows”

Come join us as we explore the History of Radio and celebrate such “Firsts” as the FIRST play-by-play football game (Nov. 23, 1919), the FIRST scheduled radio broadcast (Nov. 2, 1920) when station KDKA broadcasted the results of the presidential election. Did you know that the famous TV show “Meet the Press” originally debuted on radio in 1945?
