Event Details

Throughout human history there have been a number of inventions that have fundamentally changed how people communicate. One of the most influential was the advent of radio. Although the technology was discovered in the 19th century, radio really came into the popular culture in the first half of the 20th century. Even today, radio continues to reach nearly 250 million Americans on a weekly basis. Join Active Minds as we trace the history and impact of this important technology.
