Popular Wireless

1926

Many radio magazines were either owned by or had links with radio manufacturing companies and radio broadcasting companies, as a way of popularising wireless radio and increasing the demand for it.

 

Some ranged from showing users how to make their own wireless set, like this ‘Wireless Magazine’, to popular stories, interviews and must hear programs like this ‘Popular Wireless’, much like radio and TV magazines today.
