Radio News (02:03) September 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"On June 15th of this year the Daily Mail of London inaugurated the first "world" concert, in conjunction with the famous opera star, Madame Nellie Melba, transmitting her voice over vast distances; the music in some instances was heard over a thousand miles away from the sending station. Madame Melba was performing at Chelmsford, near London, singing into the microphone of a standard radio telephone apparatus. The results left nothing to be desired."
