Dick Cavett hosts this excellent retrospective of the early days of radio, with the great Rosemary Clooney opening and closing this great documentary by singing its theme song "Remember When". It chronicles radio from its first large-scale use by Marconi of the Tesla coil to broadcast across the Atlantic ocean through the early inklings of its possiblities by the Marconi employee who scooped the media with his radio reception of the list of survivors of the Titanic sinking, the future NBC head David Sarnoff, and then follows a full and fulfilling point for point account of the early history of radio as entertainment and news service up until the age of disc jockey. Its respects are paid to: Amos & Andy, Bing Crosby, Kate Smith, Edward R. Murrow, gag writers, Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy, Fiorello LaGuardia, Abbott & Costello, game shows, The Quiz Kids, Major Bowes Amateur Hour, big band remotes, Xavier Cugat, Benny Goodman, Jimmy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Kay Kyser, sound effects, The Great Gildersleeve, soap operas, children's shows, radio preachers, Billy Sunday, Suspense!, Peter Lorre, The War of the Worlds Broadcast, Orson Welles, the Hindenburg crash, mobile radio units, disaster coverage, war correspondants, Floyd Gibbons, Lowell Thomas, H. V. Kaltenborn, President Franklin Roosevelt, the Spanish Civil War, World War II, Pearl Harbor, Bob Hope, Command Performance, Iva Toguri aka "Orphan Ann" aka "Tokyo Rose", Pacific beach landings, crime shows, police radios, newspaper picture transmissions, the transfiguration of radio at the advent of television into an even bigger business as a music transmission medium, amateur radio broadcasting, technological uses of radio, and finally radio receivers used in the attempt to detect alien civilizations and more. A necessary part of any radio enthusiast's video library.

The early History Of Radio is the history of technology that produces and uses radio instruments that use radio waves. Within the timeline of radio, many people contributed theory and inventions in what became radio. Radio development began as "wireless telegraphy". Later radio history increasingly involves matters of broadcasting.

Radio is the technology of signaling and communicating using radio waves. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves of frequency between 30 hertz (Hz) and 300 gigahertz (GHz). They are generated by an electronic device called a transmitter connected to an antenna which radiates the waves, and received by another antenna connected to a radio receiver. Radio is very widely used in modern technology, in radio communication, radar, radio navigation, remote control, remote sensing and other applications. In radio communication, used in radio and television broadcasting, cell phones, two-way radios, wireless networking and satellite communication among numerous other uses, radio waves are used to carry information across space from a transmitter to a receiver, by modulating the radio signal (impressing an information signal on the radio wave by varying some aspect of the wave) in the transmitter. In radar, used to locate and track objects like aircraft, ships, spacecraft and missiles, a beam of radio waves emitted by a radar transmitter reflects off the target object, and the reflected waves reveal the object's location. In radio navigation systems such as GPS and VOR, a mobile receiver accepts radio signals from navigational radio beacons whose position is known, and by precisely measuring the arrival time of the radio waves the receiver can calculate its position on Earth. In wireless radio remote control devices like drones, garage door openers, and keyless entry systems, radio signals transmitted from a controller device control the actions of a remote device. Applications of radio waves which do not involve transmitting the waves significant distances, such as RF heating used in industrial processes and microwave ovens, and medical uses such as diathermy and MRI machines, are not usually called radio. The noun radio is also used to mean a broadcast radio receiver. Radio waves were first identified and studied by German physicist Heinrich Hertz in 1886. The first practical radio transmitters and receivers were developed around 1895-1896 by Italian Guglielmo Marconi, and radio began to be used commercially around 1900. To prevent interference between users, the emission of radio waves is regulated by law, coordinated by an international body called the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), which allocates frequency bands in the radio spectrum for different uses.
