    Celebrating an overlooked pioneer

    Who knew I grew up in a town where radio really started? WBUR has the story. Sure, Marconi technically invented the concept of the radio broadcast, but all that he accomplished were some blips and bleeps when he transmitted morse code. But it was Reginald A. Fessenden who delivered the world's first voice radio broadcast from Marshfield, MA in 1906. And the broadcast took place 100 years ago today!

    There's going to be a little celebration around noon today to commemorate the broadcast. We might just try to swing by and dance to Handel's "Largo."
