Week 2 & 4

C’era una volta la radio

with Rosetta De Tina

Every 2nd Saturday 0700am – 0800am

Pane Amore e Fantasia

La radio e uno dei mezzi di comunicazione di massa tra I piu’ difusi e apprezzati. L’invenzione della radio e frutto di una serie di esperimenti alla fine dell’ottocento.

Il primo a riuscirci fu Guglielmo Marconi, italiano,che nel 1895, a soli 21 anni, riusci’  a trasmettereun segnale in Codice Morsa. 

Il primo a riuscire a trasmettere I suoni fu il canadese Reginald Fessenden nel 1900.

Il broadcasting inizio nel 1920 ed era pronto ad entrare nelle case di tutto il mondo.

La radio si dimostra in grado di accontentare I gusti del pubblico, specialmente per gli ascoltatori dela 4EB Gruppo italiano, riportandoli ai trionfi del passato.

 Per questo “Pane amore e Fantasia” e il mio debole; cioe’ canzoni di una volta che ti accontentano, ti fanno sognare e fantasticare.
