Mall order today t " MICHIGAN BULB CO.f Dept.‘ AC-73 148 Monroe Avtnut, N.W.f Grand Rapids 2, Midi Over The Airways -By BEN McDonald Recently we wrote about the origin ox nana-siidRii k ,nd were rather srprised at the various replies we received :oncerning this custom. It is generally agreed, by the cor espondents, that the custom started as a safety measure n the days of long ago. Appended to Dave Hurd’s note was i bit of an essay on the custom of saying “hello.” While he i Vr-t mxrlorlera au uu .- —-- « ast how this saluation be ame a natural greeting, he entured to say that it was rorth investigating. In his >tter was enclosed a poem rhich he believes would be a op opener for some broad aster. Now, while we leave he little matter of delving nto the historical background f the origin of the greeting > the readers, we fully agree with lave that the poem is a knockout f a program idea. “HELLO” “Hello” only lasts for a min ute, ..... It’s a short, brisk, queer little word, But, say! There’s a lot of cheer in it; It's like the first chirp of a bird In spring, when the hilltops are greening, Right after the cold and the snow. I think when it comes to real meaning, There isn’t a word like “Hello!” UST THINGS Everybody wants to be a “first, t doesn’t matter much what thj first” is, be it the first, to wall p the side of the Murchison build ng or the “first" to have a wy< creen erected in front of the stag d save “talent” from vegetables n one way, “firsts” are big busi ess with the research orgamza ions they get anywhere from qn< 0 50 dollars to determine who wa irst and why. If it ties in with i iook, a radio station, invention o song the “first” is paid off in tb iig dough. And it’s a very seriou natter, this “first” business. As i natter of fact the Westinghous tations withdrew from the Nation 1 Association of Broadcasting be ause NAB credited Detroit’s WW, /ith being the first regular broad asting station on the air, rathe han KDKA. rHERE’S A BOOK Some years ago Arthur Church decided to take all of radio’s firsts and publish them in a volume to be called “The First Quarter of a Century of American Broadcasting.” Well, what started out to be a pleas ant tribute to the industry be came a research job of such a size that even the final volume will have a great many ques tion marks and no one will ever be able to prove the “firsts” to the satisfaction of all. A FEW FIRSTS Can you answer them? . . . Was the San Jose, Calif., radio tele phone transmitting station, that aft erwards became known as KQW the first radio station to begin regular broadcasting of radio programs in 1912, after being on the air since 1909? . . . Was WTAM, Cleveland, the first radio station to broadcast a complete opera taken down on a wire recorder in Germany in 1924? . . . Also was WTAM the first sta tion to broadcast on FM in the same year? Before you try to answer these questions, let's look on the other side Of the ledger. In the first place it is generally understood in the trade that wire recording is some thing Of the 1940’s; and that FM is a development of Major Edwin H. Armstrong and is also of the 1940 or so vintage. Thus the round and round of "firsts” gets started. It goes on and on and the before • going will give you some inkling i of the tempest now brewing in the : radio “firsts” microphone. How • about local listeners giving out > With a-few “firsts?” We must have > a number of them down this way. - SPOT NEWS Digging deep into its radio bag ! of surprises, the STAR - NEWS 5 REEL has come up with a program 1 that should tickle the ears of the : audience when it takes to the air ! at 1:16 p m. over WMFD today. s There’ll be three distinct features 1 with personalities that you will 5 want to hear.
