AM Radio InventionInv_AMRadio_Teal_12x12 $44
Hey, who says AM radio isn't cool? If Quebec-born Reginald Fessenden saw our art print that pays homage to his 1906 amplitude-modulated (AM) radio invention, we think he'd agree that AM radio still has style. His first radio audio broadcasts were heard only by ships at sea but his invention went on to inspire a cultural revolution bringing music, news, and entertainment to billions of people around the world.
Over the decades, AM radios have been made into many different shapes from large wooden cabinets to small transistor pocket versions. We could have chosen any model for our 'AM Radio' art poster but we were inspired by a vintage Zenith beauty—the type that used to sit on Grandma's kitchen table belting out hits from the 1960s.
