Medford radio-the fourth R. A year ago the Register (Vol. XXIV, p. 38) made mention of the devil's fiddle craze spread by the boys of fifty years before, which was the precursor of the telephone. We were then constrained to add a few words about the wireless telephone, quoting from the Boston Transcript (June 11) concerning the wireless concerts given on Wednesday evenings at Medford Hillside. Mention also was made (Vol. XVIII, p. 77) of the erection of Medford's sky-scraper, the radio tower. Events follow each other in rapid succession and make history quickly in modern days. The little laboratory erected in 1916 has been twice enlarged, and a larger factory of most modern construction erected on College Avenue, where once was Pansy park. There is something doing every evening on the northern slope of old Walnut-tree hill, some years called College hill, but now widely known as Amrad Station Wgi of the American Radio and Research Corporation at Medford Hillside.
