Many adjectives are used in this article to describe the Christmas Day radio programming being planned by the Canadian Radio Commission – unheard of, daring, thrilling. It was to begin with the Christmas message from King George V. There would also be choirs, interviews, and stories from across Canada, requiring the services of over 1000 people and technicians and using 32 000 miles of wire. I wonder if it lived up to this report. As a sign of our times, I looked and you could actually listen to King George’s speech on YouTube.
