Now in its second year, this calendar features 13 high-resolution color images, dating between 1920 and 1959, of historic radio broadcast studios.
Every picture began as an original black and white glossy photograph. The photographs were then digitally remastered and colorized, in order to depict the original scenes as accurately as possible. Two pages of text at the end of the calendar detail the history of the scenes.
Each month’s page also includes important dates in radio history.
