  • David Sarnoff - American Marconi Company. “ I have in mind a plan of development which would make radio a household utility in the same sense as the piano or phonograph... The receiver can be designed in the form of a simple radio music box and arranged for several different wavelengths which would be changeable with the throwing of a single switch or pressing a single button. The box can be placed in the parlor or living room the switch set accordingly and the transmitted music received... This proposition would be especially interesting to farmers and others living in outlying districts removed from cities. By the purchase of a ‘Radio Music Box’ they could enjoy concerts, lectures, music, recitals etc., which may be going on in the nearest city within their radius.
