Description

As the number of commercial stations rapidly expanded in the late 1920s, weekly and monthly programming guides began popping up to help listeners find their favorites. This is a well-produced and very early example, containing photographs of performers and program listings of every American radio station. This issue is contained within an embossed leather folder specially designed by the publisher.
