United States CTC, Celebrating the Century, 1900s,
Radio Entertains America,
By the end of the 1920s, radio had become a national obsession. Families crowded around their sets to listen to newscasts, comedy and children’s shows, variety hours, and presidential speeches. The stamp art is based on a photograph of a 1923 Atwater Kent radio.
