Radio News (02:05) November 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Ye olden time circuit preacher in Kansas who rode from parish to parish, little dreamed that twenty years hence his more modern followers would step to the radio transmitter, close the switch and for twenty minutes preach to a greater number of listeners than his complete circuit preaching ever reached. Even the average layman, quite well read in scientific subjects, does not always realize the wonderful strides made in radio telephone and telegraph research work."
This issue of Radio News is from November 1920. The cover presents a contest to name the cover art. Inside is Part 2 of an article by Dr. Lee De Forest, “The Audion—Its Action and Some Recent Applications.” Other articles include the advent of the radio preacher and a Hugo Gernsback essay on “Fool Ideas.”
