ON AIR

100 years of radio

Two days before Christmas, "Silent Night, Holy Night" sounds on the radio, intoned by clarinet, harmonium, strings and piano. What is nothing special today was a sensation about 100 years ago: On December 22, 1920, Reichspost employees of the main radio station in Königs Wusterhausen near Berlin played a historic Christmas concert - the first public radio broadcast in Germany.
