Description

From the label text: "Charles David Herrold (1875-1945) is one of broadcasting's forgotten fathers. From his wireless college in San Jose, California, Herrold transmitted between 1912 and 1917 weekly programs of music and talk designed to entertain a small but loyal audience. It happened nearly ten years before licensed radio broadcasting. And while he was ahead of his time, most poeple know very little about his life, his work, or his significance. [...] Herrold's story is told in this one-hour documentary by Mike Adams."
