'Radio Qbset 1 I ' ves FOR YOUR Golden Pittsburgh (urr . -a itorm raged on election night, , .Nov. 2, 1920. Only t few hardy souls braved the elements to . watch the returns being pasted on outdoor bulletin boards as Sen. Warren G. Harding fleieated James M. cox for the presidency. But, then were a few lucky radio fans in the Pittsburgh area who sat in the comfort of their homes, tuned in on their crystal sets ina listened to the - election results bj earphone. The returns were being broadcast beginning at 6 p.m. that day, by KDKA, the first licensed commercial radio station in the United States. They were interspersed with music and a request: "Will anyone hearing this broadcast communicate with ns, as we are anxious to know . how far the broadcast Is reaching and how it is being .received." Suspicions Captain One reaction came from a U.S. Army transport off the Virginia coast. When the ship's t radio operator picked up the broadcast and excitedly asked permission to post the returns, the captain refused. He suspect ed a hoax. More general was the newspaper comment throughout the country which hailed the broadcast "first" as sensation al. The 50th anniversary of that broadcast Monday will be . celebrated as the industry's golden jubilee, but the series of events that ended with that broadcast and began the age of radio really got underway in 1912. That was when Dr. Frank : Conrad, assistant chief engineer of westinghouse Electric in Pittsburgh, built a small receiver to hear time signals from the naval observatory at Arlington, va., He bet a coworker $5 that his $12 radio tuned watch was accurate. He von the bet. First License Intrigued by his hobby, Conrad Dtuit a transmitter . in his garage at the rear of his nome in wuansburg, near Pittsburgh. The U.S. Department of Commerce, then a radio licensing agency, issued a license to 8XK, operated by .Conrad, on Aug. 1, 1916. 1 KDKA's claim as the world's first radio station is supported by Dr. Gleason Archer in his , book, 'The History of Radio," in which Archer says records at tne Department of Commerce indicated KDKA in Pittsburgh is the direct descendant of 8 XK, which w?s relicensed May 1, 1920. Conrad supervised the con struction of KDKA, which :began only p month before the 1920 elections. The station was issued a lirrnse on Oct. 27, 1920. The election broadcast originated in a shack on the roof of a Westinghouse Electric Corp., building in east Pittsburgh. Two months after the station went on the air, it began Presenting regular services rom Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh. The Westing-house engineering crew, which included an Irish Catholic and a Jew, wore Episcopal surplices to make thein inconspicuous among the churchmen. KDKA was far ahead of the Ecumenical movement Other KDKA "firsts" included Herbert Hoover's radio debut on Jan. 15, 1921, speeches by Col. Theodore Roosevelt Jr., the following month and President Hard'n's inaugural address on March 4, 1921.

Arlln sail when he handed Ruth a prepared script right before the Sultan of Swat's appearance, Ruth was stricken with mike fright. , 'So I read the speecn myself," Arlin said. "Ruth stood by smoking a cigar. I received several letters com menting on 'what a wonderful voice Babe Ruth has. " Will Rogers amazed Arlin by his ad libbin" ability. .'He looked al a newspaper and talked for la minutes in a very numerous vein," Ariin said. "It was one of the most remarkable demonstrations of extemporaneous wit I've ever witnessed." The late H.P. Davis, a vice president of Westinghouse in radio's infancy and later board chairman of NBC, wrote this about broadcasting in January, 1922: "And where will it end? What are the limitations Who dares to predict' Belays will permit one station 'o pass its message on to another, and we may easily expect to hear in an outlying farm in Maine some great artist singing, into microphone many thousand miles away.

Much of Chopin's music familiar, but the B Flat Sonata s demands preffFnf its being performed too frequently. It is amazing , that the petite Miss Delgado has the strength and control to meet these demands. Also, her musicianship shows marked sensitivity to nuance. Without -taxing the imagination one can recognize the elements (throughout the four movements) of narration. ma and lyricism.. Technically there is delicacy, brilliance and excitement. The Rachmanloff Rhapsody is, in form, more correctly a concerto for which Miss Delgado had the most capable assistance of Joan Allison at the second piano. Rachmanioff's genius appears in v the . undertaking to write twenty-four variations on a fairly simple caprice treated by the Italian violinist Paganlni.

"I really think we are at the beginning of a profound idea about the future of music," Shaff said, "The tape recorder brings to the ear what the camera brought to - many people's vision." He believes enjoyment of sound is a repressed instinct. "That's why people sing in the shower and toot their horns in tunnels." Changing Tones Shaff's compositions achieved continuity by one sound's dissolving 'nto another, and changing in'o new. tones.
