Virtual  Radio Days – The Science & Show Business Virtual Tour

It’s the science and show business virtual tour…

Radio is the child of many fathers and we’ll tune in to the locations where the big breakthroughs in physics and mathematics took place in London in the 19th & early 20th Century.

There surely can’t be too many tours that feature James Clerk Maxwell* AND Tony Blackburn** but this one does! We’ll examine the celebrity culture that grew up around radio presenters in the 1960s, 70s and 80’s – and track the rise and fall of BBC Radio One.

We’ll look at the challenges of broadcasting during WWII and even take a refreshing dip in the Thames Estuary to look at the birth of commercial radio in Britain.

Don’t touch that dial!

It’s Radio Days – the call sign for the Scientific & Broadcasting History of Radio

*19th Century scientist whose mathematical works unified the principals upon which radio broadcasting was built

** Former Pirate Radio DJ who went legit and spun the first record on new BBC pop music station Radio One in 1967
