Radio News (02:02) August 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Visitors to Asbury Park, N. J., are being entertained with a most unique innovation introduced by W. Harold Warren in the form of a roller chair equipt to receive wireless telephone and telegraph signals as the passenger rolls merrily along the boardwalk. Scores of boardwalk promenaders are attracted by the various demonstrations and are permitted to "listen-in." They hear the conversations and musical phonograph records transmitted by the Foxhurst station of Western Electric Co."
This is the January 1920 issue of Radio News. The cover art is “Radio Music at Asbury” and the feature story is “The Radiophone on Roller Chairs.” Other articles include building a cage type antenna, news on Japanese, French, and British radio sets, and the story of an accomplished female radio amateur.
