The Radio was one of the most instrumental pieces of equipment in 1920s publicity and broadcasting. It was first developed long before in 1879, but it was bulky, noisy, and had poor reception. After being later revamped with new vacuum tubes and rectifiers, the radio was honed into the interesting little device that made it into such a craze during the 1920s.
