Do you remember?
General Electric released this ad, one of a series featuring well-known faces, in February 1947. This ad included Kay Kyser, professor of the “Kollege of Musical Knowledge” heard each Wednesday over NBC. Kyser kept his NBC show in the top 10 for 11 years and was dubbed “the ‘Ol Professor of Swing”. The ads touted the new sound of FM radio and that GE produced “natural color tone radios.”
When FM radio was introduced 60 years ago, radio manufacturers pushed hard to inform potential listeners about the new technology. Today, the same cannot be said for the HD Radio rollout.
