Doubleday Canada, Toronto, 1982. 
303 pp, small 4to (10 15/16" H), soft cover. B&w illustrations. "(T)he dynamic oral history of the days when a radio wasn't bought, but made - usually out of a breadboard and old wire. To some, the mysterious 'wireless' signals seemed to be the voice of the angels. To others, they represented the opportunity to forge a new industry that would revolutionize the future, and sometimes give rise to fame and personal fortunes. (This is) the story of the birth of radio in Canada as told by the men and women who made it happen. Included as well are recollections by the people responsible for radio's huge success - the listeners. Illustrated with more than four hundred advertisements, drawings and photographs, these are the stories you never heard on the air; the stories you won't forget." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear, pink spine color faded to green, spine flat with one light crease. VG
