In a new exhibition, Los Altos History Museum focuses on the Radio Revolution of the Roaring 20s, on display in the J. Gilbert Smith House March 3rd – May 1st, 2022. Visitors to the exhibition will see a 1920s radio, sheet music, and other artifacts of the period, including a flapper dress.
The 1920s saw a revolution in audio technology, including widespread adoption of radio, as well as the telephone, music recordings, and the ushering of the sound era in film. The first radio broadcast in the United States occurred in 1920, and by 1922, 600 radio stations had sprung up throughout the country. The exhibition showcases the evolution of radio technology and marketing over the decade.
