FROM THE PRODUCER OF THE SCHOLASTIC GAMES, A SPECIAL 2020 DOCUMENTARY: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY RADIO”

Scheduled commercial broadcasting in America began on Nov. 2, 1920, with election returns presented on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh.  Sixty-five years later, Jim Mehrling, the host and producer of the Scholastic Games quiz, was able to locate and interview Leo Rosenberg, the man KDKA 2020who had been the announcer on that broadcast.   At age 89, Rosenberg recalled the event in vivid detail.  Beginning with that interview, Mehrling has compiled a documentary on radio’s evolution and history on the occasion of radio’s centennial (last November) which he offers for your enjoyment here.  Just click on this link.

Thanks for your support of the Scholastic Games of Lorain County.
