I was eight years old (1921) when I heard my first radio program. We lived on Third Street then, and on Second Street, near us, Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson lived. He was an old man who had a leather and harness business and he liked children. This radio was long and narrow with a lot of dials. One day he asked Charlie and me over to listen. We were amazed to hear music and talking, coming into our ears through these ear-phones. They were funny and heavy. We had a radio of our own in 1931, a Deforest-Crossley, that didn't have ear-phones.
