The Fessenden Connection

We are proud of the monumental achievements of world class radio pioneer, Reginald Fessenden who at the turn of the twentieth century, many believe was the first in the world to invent AM radio and provide the first voice and music broadcast to a startled group of radio listeners who never thought that such a feat was possible.

We celebrate that outstanding contribution and present wonderful opportunity to hear more about the Fessenden family and thoughts about Reginald’s place in history as Bob Fessenden provides us with some of the interesting background to the story that made radio history.
