Radio Log


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


This interesting old item measures approximately 6-1/4" x 8-1/4", and t are 10 pages inside. The pages open from the bottom, not the side. I have to admit that I am a bit ignorant in regard to this piece, so I am going to basically list what I see on each page.

Photos of H.P. Davis (Father of Broadcasting), J.C. McQuiston (General Advertising Manager - Westinghouse), and three others. Photos of the Principal Studio, Victor Saudek (musical director) and others. Page is titled "Voice You Know" - t are nine photos: Louis L. Kaufmann, Mary Francis Philput, Elbert R. Moses and more. List of stations (Call Letters - City - Wavelength Assignment). Example: KFIF - Portland, Oregon - 211 F. Page 5 and 6 are of Hayne's Radio Log. As stated on the bottom of page 6 "The stations are listed above in the exact order they will be tuned in as you turn your dial in one direction. Begin at the bottom; follow the column containing familiar, nearby stations. Enter your settings for them in the space provided. One entry will automatically log all stations..." N/A More Station Listings More Station Listings (including Canadian, Cuban, Mexican) Photos of Winchester Band, Stephen Leyshon (announcer Sacred Song Concert) and others. This page is titled "Some High Spots in KDKA's History." T are six photos: Jack Thompson, Dr. Edwin J. Van Etten, George A. Wendt, Will Rhodes, Chas. W. Hamp, Alex L. Sherwood. Well, I think that abundance of info should give you a wonderful idea of what you are bidding on. I did find a date of Nov. 1928 on the Hayne's Radio Log.

The piece is in fair condition. It is holding together well; no loose, torn or missing pages. Someone wrote WKRC in pencil on the cover - quite small, but I found no other writing in the book. The book has darkening and discoloration, with a bit of corner wear. T is a stain drop on the front.

The most evident wear is some creasing. The left edge has creased - most evident on the cover and first few pages. T is also some evident pressure creasing on the back cover - also affects some of the pages inside.

So, in short, the book is holding together very well, and it actually looks good, because t are no tears or anything of that sort. But, the creasing is somewhat evident, so please do not expect a perfect piece - just expect a piece full of great information. Oh, and you can also expect the radio log to make a wonderful addition to your collection!
