The WQXR Radio, That Hi-Fi Wonder
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
Long before the WQXR app, the station was marketing a very different type of newfangled technology. In the late 1930s, WQXR branded a line of home radios, complete with mahogany cabinets, AC/DC operation and in some cases, built-in phonographs. Listeners were invited to visit the studios, then at 730 Fifth Avenue, to come experience the technological wonder for themselves.
