Wishing All Confessors, Even the Snotty Ones, the Very Merriest of Christmases
And we should also remember this date for another reason: On December 24, 1906, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden demonstrated his radical new alternator-based transmitter (as opposed to a spark transmitter) from a tower in Brant Rock, Massachusetts, by playing a recording of Handel, performing "O Holy Night" on his violin, singing a Gounod song, and reading from Luke.
It was the first-ever radio broadcast of entertainment material.
And here we are.
I believe that hardware was later reassembled and installed at Victory Park.
Best to you and your loved ones from My Ticket Confession.
