Paragraph#2 Marconi/ Edison

The Invention

Pretty Asx Kiki's insight:

Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. He was an American inventor and successful businessman. The phonograph was made because Thomas Edison wanted to see how the telegraph and telephone worked together. Just to see how the play back and sound was. Guglielmo Marconi is oftened credited as the inventor of radio. His early years he was interested in science and electricity. One of his developments came from Heinrich Hertz. His development was that he could detect electromagnetic radiation, which is radio waves. After Hertz died, Marconi researched on his worked. He had started to conduct his experiments. His goal was to use radio waves to create a pratical system of wireless telegraphy. Wireless telegraphy was not a new idea, many investigators had been exploring wireless telegraphy for years. None was successful though. But Marconi's was successful.

Primary Document#3 Edison Record/Guglielmo Marconi | The Creation of Radio & the Recording of Sound | Scoop.it

The phonograph was developed as a result of Thomas Edison's work on two other inventions, the telegraph and the telephone. Guglielmo Marconi is the actual inventor of the radio. He is an Itailian. Marconi is often credited as the inventor of radio, and he shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun "in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy". As an entrepreneur, businessman, and founder of the The Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company in Britain in 1897, Marconi succeeded in making a commercial success of radio by innovating and building on the work of previous experimenters and physicists. In 1924, he was ennobled as Marchese Marconi.

Primary Document #1 (Magic Box)

Primary Document #1 (Magic Box) | The Creation of Radio & the Recording of Sound | Scoop.it

This is a radio that was in the 1920s. it was alot of things you had to do before playing music. They originally used the radio for neighborhood picnics. The entertainment. If the magic box worked
right, was going to be much different from the fiddle playing or a game of horseshoes or town gossip that normally filled those Sunday
afternoon social events in the 1920s. What they meant by that is people would be listening to music instead of playing and gossiping. People really did enjoy the toons that the magic box was playing.

Paragraph#1 Social Changes

Music
Pretty Asx Kiki's insight:

The 1920's was a decade of exciting social changes and profound cultural conflicts. It was a decadeof deep cultural division. The phonograph and radio made popular music more accessible than before. 1920's saw the record player enter American life in full source. Pianao sales sagged as phonograph production rose from just 190,000 in 1923 to 5 million in 1929. Popularity of jazz, blues, and country music fueled the phonograph. Duke Ellington wrote the first extended jazz compostions. The blues erupted in 1920. A black singer named Mamie Smith released a recording called crazy blues. The record had became a sensation selling 75,000 copies in a month. People were making money. Also selling music.

Primary Document#2 Vintage Broadcasting

Primary Document#2 Vintage Broadcasting | The Creation of Radio & the Recording of Sound | Scoop.it

When the first pioneer broadcasting stations went on the air in the early 1920s, the Department of Commerce regulated the radio frequencies. So-called "entertainment" stations were allowed to operate on a frequency of 360 meters (roughly 833 kHz). A second frequency of 485 meters (approx. 690 kHz) was set aside for broadcasting crop reports and weather services. Neither the transmitting equipment nor the receivers were capable of operating in a narrow 10 kHz bandwidth, and the early entertainment stations all had to share the same space. listeners would sometimes have to search for their favorite station, and with primitive receiving equipment it could be a challenge. Local stations would take turns or share time on the same frequency. Interference from distant stations was less of a problem in the earliest days because the crystal sets and other primitive receivers weren't all that sensitive.
