Radio News (02:11) May 1921

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The photograph shows Mr. J. E. Brown's station (INBA) at Glenbrook, Conn. It is this station which is represented on the front cover of this magazine, with Mr. Brown's dog, Lassie, listening to her master's voice during some Radiofone experiments. In a letter sent with the photograph of his dog, Mr. Brown says, 'The intelligent animal enjoys the music as much as her master!'"
This is the May 1921 issue of Radio News. The cover art is recreated from a photo (With the Amateurs article) sent in by a reader showing his dog listening to “his master’s voice.” Other articles cover new radio legislation, the expiration of a Marconi patent, new double-grid vacuum tube radio circuits, a long-range receiver, and part 4 of the Who’s Who in Radio series featuring Greenleaf Whittier Pickard.
