You are missing something these
KWL, the Los Angeles Examiner,

bring in the long distance signals.

Kauai is still on the map and you

Last Friday evening, KOG, Los
Angeles, KFI, Los Angetes, and
KWH also of Los Angeles were
heard fine and clear. Most of their
programs were only "canned music"
but it gives you quite a thrill to
hear 'em talk and piny music from
a spot two. thousand miles away.
Last evening, Friday, Senator and
coming delegate, John Wise, made
a short and interesting speech to all
the people of the territory thru the
KGU broadcasting station. Speaking
to people throughout the territory
from one central point, mainly Ho
nolulu, is the great possibility of

Radio a Necessity
Radio has come to be classed
as a winter Indoor sport for the
mainland. Down here in Hawaii we
can enjoy the year around radio, al
though it will come thru better dur
ing the winter months and will be
especially enjoyed during the rainy
weather when it is too damp to ven
ture out of doors.
The radio boom a few months
ago is slowing up a bit today, but
the future outlook is very bright.
The summer months on the main
land are hard on radio on account
of heavy static which spoils the
concerts. And these summer months,
the thoughts of all arc turned to
out of doors hiking, camping, fish
ing, traveling and hunting.
Yet all these conditions are but
passing ones. Radio has a real mis
sion to t perform and even in its
present state'of the art, fulfills its
purpose fairly well. As soon as the
weather cools down and the indoors
looks good to us, radio will occupy
our evenings. Radio in the fad stage
has passed by. We are down to
rock bottom in a very substantial
art which must find a permanent
place in our every-day life.
, Four hundred and fifty-one sta
tions are now in operation. Every
state in the Union except Wyoming
has at least one broadcasting sta
tion. Naturally the greatest number
of these stations are operated by
electrical dealers and manufactur
ers, but, C8 newspapers are broad
casting today for the benefit of
their readers and public in general.
