The Vancouver Sun’s station changed frequency and increased its power after a month of operations. It moved to 335 metres (895 kHz). It would move again before year end.

Here’s what the paper gave in its radio highlights on the front page.

Stewart Kyle was an ad salesman for the Sun.

Most of these "stories" are more like ads. Some of the grammar and punctuation is a little odd. Forgive any unfixed OCR errors.

President W. C Shelly of the Vancouver Rotary Club last night took advantage of The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited, broadcasting station to extend greetings to his fellow Rotarians on the Pacific Coast and in the Interior,
CITIZENS CO-OPERATE.
"As president of the Vancouver Rotary Club, I extend to you a cordial invitation to become our guest at the twenty-second district Rotary conference in Vancouver," he said. "The final meeting of the conference executive has been held. They tell us that everything that can help to make a conference a success has been placed at the disposal of the Rotary Club by the citizens of Vancouver.
"Now we only await the opportunity to greet you with that genuine, whole-hearted fellowship which best expresses the spirit of the Rotary club. It is my earnest prayer that this conference, which is international In character, may be the means of binding closer together by the steel cable of everlasting good fellowship, the individuals of nations, for it is only in this way that a lasting friendship, between nations themselves may be cemented.
LATEST DISCOVERY USED.
"It would seem that God in His wisdom is permitting man to uncover and learn the wonders of nature. I find myself using this latest and most wonderful discovery, this miracle-working wireless telephony, to call you to our conference that we may learn to know and understand each other better to assist In fostering peace on earth, goodwill toward men.
"Don't fail us at this conference. We are all ready for you."
Stuart Kyle, well-known local pianist, rendered several delightful selections, which were broadcasted over the radiophone last evening.

JAZZ CONCERT TO BE BROADCASTED
Sun Radio Programme for Tonight One of the Best Yet Attempted
(see listings above)
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun radio programme, broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited.
Promptly at 12:30 this signal will be flashed into the air and for the next hour the latest news and market reports will be picked up by every one having a receiving set and by ships at sea. Again at 7:30 p.m. the signal will flash and last minute telegraphic and cable news will be broadcasted to every station within a thousand miles as well as to incoming ships from the seven seas.
The programme for tonight will be particularly good, for in addition to the budget of news, selections from a jazz orchestra composed entirely of local talent, will be broadcasted. Among the selections to be rendered will be "A Song of India," "The Sheik," "Wabash Blues," "The Bow-Wow Blues," a piano selection and "The Minuet," by Paderewski.
The Jazz selection and the piano solo will emanate from the mezzanine floor of the Barron Hotel, the broadcasting being made possible by the introduction of microphones over the piano and attached to the transmitting instruments.
The Sun Radio programme is proving more and more popular every day and scores of additional receiving sets are being erected by radio fans all over the country. As an evidence of this a farmer from High River, Alberta, who happened to be in the Barron Hotel the other night, after listening to the broadcasting programme, promptly made arrangements to instal an up-to-date set at his Alberta farm, for the express purpose of picking up the Sun Radio programme.
Arrangements to still further improve the service are now under way, and all amateurs as well as officers on board ship who have receiving sets and who are in the habit of "listening in" are asked to check up on the modulation and audibility of the signals. It is by this means mat the service can be still further improved.

SEATTLE PICKS UP RADIO BROADCAST
Service From The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd., Increases Popularity
(see listings above)
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun radio programme, broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited.
Word was received from Mission City last night that F. Fisher picked up The Sun's broadcast and concert. This makes it possible for the residents at Mission City to receive all the latest news and market reports hours before it could reach them by any other channel. Also an amateur who signs himself "Radio 7 B. K.," situated at Seattle, reports that he is able to easily pick up The Sun's broadcast clearly each evening.
The Sun midday broadcast by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited, has proved extremely popular since it was inaugurated last week. Although conditions for transmitting during the day are not as good as during the evening, several reports have been received at The Sun office from distant points stating that the midday broadcast may be easily copied.
Last night’s programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited, was of high order. Besides the regular broadcast of news items, stock reports and concert selections, several popular numbers were rendered by a jazz orchestra of local talent.

SUN BROADCAST AGAIN IMPROVED
Another Great Programme Will Be Sent Out to All Tonight
(see listings above)
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun radio programme, broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited.
When that signal is flashed into the air at 12:30 p.m. and again at 7:30 daily to be picked up at stations within a thousand-mile radius, get your radio receiving apparatus tuned in on a wave of 200 metres, thus enabling you to receive all the latest news, stock and sport returns as they come off the wires and which compose a part of The Sun's radio programme broadcasted from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited transmitting station. In addition to the news broadcast, a complete concert of all the newest music is sent out into the ether to be picked up by any who may be listening in at the time.
The Sun Radio programme is proving more and more popular every day, and local radio dealers state they are unable to fill some of their orders and that many manufacturers cannot supply them with radio apparatus for periods of from one to three months. The hundreds of calls that come into The Sun office daily asking particulars concerning the installation of radio receiving apparatus, all go to show that the introduction of radiophone broadcasting in Vancouver by The Sun some weeks ago has met with no little success.
Experiments are now being carried on by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited to further improve the service and all amateurs as well as radio officers on board ships who have receiving sets and happen to be listening in when The Sun's Radio programme is being broadcasted are asked to check up on the modulation and audibility of the signals and communicate with the Radio Editor of The Sun. It is by this means that the service may still further be improved.

STILL THEY COME, WORDS OF PRAISE FROM RADIO FANS
The Sun’s Broadcast Received Clear as a Bell, Far and Wide
The Vancouver Sun's programme to be broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited, on a 200-metre wave-length at noon today and tonight is follows:
12:30 p.m.—Latest news and market reports.
1:00 p.m.—Final news reports from all parts of the world.
7:30 p.m.—News reports and market returns.
7:45 p.m.—Musical selections.
8:00 p.m.—Bruce McKelvie, manager of the B. C. Products Bureau of the Board of Trade, will speak.
8:15 p.m.—Concert numbers

The Classic phonograph, a made-in-B.C. production, and Apex records, a Canadian-made product, used for playing musical selections, are both supplied by courtesy of The Artcraft Phonograph Company of Vancouver.
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun radio programme, broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Limited.
This is the signal that hundreds eagerly await each and every night within a radius of a thousand miles from the heart of this city, to say nothing of passengers on board incoming vessels who are hungry for news that comes red hot off the leased wire and cable services of The Sun.
That the programme is appreciated and eagerly looked forward to there can be no doubt for communications continue to pour into the office from radio enthusiasts by mall, telephone and wire, all expressing delight with the news and musical programme The Sun broadcasts each day at noon and each evening at 7 o'clock.
FROM ALL POINTS.
This is not just a flash in the pan, for they still continue to come, the comments showing that despite weather conditions and other atmospherical disturbances, the service given is more than usually successful. It is a noteworthy fact that in many instances the fans were able to enjoy the entire programme without being obliged to use any amplification in connection with their receiving sets, or ordinary detector.
From Seattle, from as far south as San Diego and from points In the north and the middle west, The Sun radiophone service has been picked up and so enthusiastic are those who "listen in" in their praise, that hundreds of others who have caught the craze are installing receiving sets. The manufacturers cannot cope with the demand and arrangements are now well under way whereby a local concern will soon be turning out the sets wholesale in an endeavor to keep pace with the demand that has suddenly made itself manifest.
EVERYBODY’S DOING IT
Not only among the whites is the craze at its height, for accounts coming from the north show that the more intelligent Indians are now making arrangements to instal receiving equipment. Just as one of the Northern B. C Indians discarded his war canoe some few days ago for the more up-to-date gasoline launch, making a present of his old boat to the Stanley Park museum, so have some of his followers made arrangements to "listen in" on The Sun programme.
The programme tonight will be an improvement even upon that given every night for the past five weeks. The latest cable and telegraphic news from every part of the world as well as the special Sun features off its own leased wires will be broadcasted. Popular, classic and dance music will be Included, and as an added attraction, Bruce McKelvie, manager of the B. C. Products Bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade, will tell everyone within a thousand mile radius all about the B. C. Products Day which is to be held in the city on Friday.
MORE NEW FEATURES
The B. C. Electric employees, who hold their banquet tonight, will also be looked after, food for the brain as well as the body being served them. Without leaving the banquet table they will be treated to a radiophone concert and the world's digest of news, and then at 9 o'clock, they will hear a speech from their own traffic manager, J. Baldwin, not from an adjoining table in the banquet hall, but from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited broadcasting station.
The popularity of the service given by The Sun, absolutely free of charge, is daily more apparent, and just as The Sun was the first paper to inaugurate this advanced form of news distribution, so is it the first paper to improve upon its original service. Arrangements are now well nigh completed whereby the transmitting wave will be considerably lengthened, thereby making the service available to those who have hitherto been outside the area served. The audibility will also be improved.
The Sun wants everyone to enjoy this free service and in order to improve it as much as possible, all amateurs are requested to check up and report back to The Sun just how the service sounds to them. A survey of the news pages the following morning will prove profitable for they will contain information that is of real value to all enthusiasts.

(see listings above)
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! This is The Sun Radio programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophone Limited.
Again last night a splendid programme was broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited to be picked up by operators at both commercial and amateur stations hundreds of miles away. As well as the regular programme of news, market reports and concert numbers, Bruce McKelvie, manager of the B. C. Products Bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade, gave to all listening in a short talk on just what "Made In B. C. Day,'' which is today, means to British Columbia.
Those who attended the B. C. E. Ry. Co. employees' banquet last night were given something novel in the way of entertainment. The Sun's Radio programme forecasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited was picked up with a receiver installed by The Sprott-Shaw Wireless School in the banquet hall and the signals were strengthened by means of delicate amplifying apparatus, so that while sitting at dinner those who attended the banquet were able to hear a complete radio concert and news broadcast.

SELECTIONS BY ORCHESTRA SOON
Sun Radiophone Will Give "Listeners In" Great Musical Treat Next Week
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This Is The Sun Radio programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited.
Orchestra selections by well known Vancouver musicians will be a feature of next week's programme to be broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd., on a 200-metre wave length.
The usual programme of music and news will be flashed into the ether today. A musical programme will commence at 12:30 noon followed by early news reports terminating with musical selections at 1 p.m.
From 7:30 till 8:30 p.m. news and music wil [sic] be broadcasted.
Radio receiving stations in outlying districts are rapidly replacing in popularity the proverbial grocery store where new, several days old, was formerly discussed by the cronies of the settlement. Within the past few weeks many radio stations have been set up in these out-of-the-way districts, and each evening, people gather to hear the latest news from all parts of the world vibrating through the receiving set a few hours after the actual occurrence.
The Vancouver Sun radiophone broadcast is bringing the backwoods to the city's backdoor. That the service is being appreciated is evinced by the constant requests for information received at The Vancouver Sun office from points within a radius of many miles of the city.
As amateurs become more accustomed to the manipulation of their receiving outfits, music and news report are being heard with greater clarity and the popularity of "listening in" to the activities or the world is growing.

There is radio in are air and all you have to do is to pick it out. Every little ripple and every little current is full of it, popular, dance, classical, jazz and almost every other kind.

Not only is there music in the air but also the latest world's news fills the ether twice dally from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited, First at 12.30 p.m., and then again at 7:30 p.m., so get that radiophone receiving set working and get in on this wonderful free service made possibly by The Sun.
Many enquiries are dally received at The Sun office from interior points asking information as to where sets may be attained, so that those living in isolated districts, where it is impossible to get daily mail service, will be able to keep in touch with the latest world's events even though they might be hundreds of miles from the nearest channel of communication. With radiophone receiving sets installed in the interior the isolation from the outside world may be broken down at the will of the operator of such a receiving station.

HUNDREDS ARE NEWS HUNGRY
Sun Radio Broadcast Is Daily Appeasing This Appetite
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! This Is The Vancouver Sun Radio programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited.
In thousands of busy offices throughout Western Canada, there are men this morning who are hungry for news, and unless they happen to be fairly close to some large urban centre they will have to wait until the train comes in with the paper and this is usually not until well into the afternoon [sic]. There are others who want the latest market reports for such information is essential to their business. They too will have to wait, unless they have kept up with the times and installed a radio receiving set.
AIR IS FULL
The very news the majority of them so anxiously await is in the air. Every little current, every wave is full of news and full of music too and the only thing required to pick it out of the air at any time is the radio receiving apparatus.
The Vancouver Sun, the first paper in Canada to inaugurate the advanced method of news distribution through the radiophone broadcasting system, is at the present moment making stupendous efforts to still further improve the service given and when the final aims are realized, there will not be a single person in the great hinterland of British Columbia that need fear isolation from the rest of the world in so far as news is concerned.
Through The Vancouver Sun Radiophones Limited the latest cable and telegraphic news will be broadcasted as well as all special news despatches to The Vancouver Sun over its own specially leased wires. Concerts, lectures, speeches of distinguished visitors to the city and even the sermons preached in the great churches of Vancouver will be available to all who care to hear them.
SERVICE IS POPULAR
All that is necessary is the receiving apparatus and this can now be purchased in the city at a very reasonable cost. Those installing the sets have been so numerous of late that the manufacturers have found it hard to keep up with the demand.
This is just one indication of how popular the service is and to help the game along, special articles are appearing in The Vancouver Sun from day to day.
The programme for noon and this evening will be seen at the head of this story [it was not]. The musical part, will be of the same high calibre as has been the rule in the past, while the news features will be the latest obtainable.
There will be important announcements during the week and special news is likely to "break." Amateurs taking advantage of the services given by this paper free of charge are asked to keep in touch with us and say just how the service appeals to them for it is by such communications that the service can be improved.

NEW TRANSMITTER STARTS TONIGHT
Tests of Sun's Radiophone Apparatus Show Voice as Clear as Bell
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun Radio programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd. Tonight at 7:30 o clock, The Sun Radio programme will be broadcasted for the first time from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd., new high-power 100-watt radiophone transmitter.
Last night and the night before were busy evenings for Bruce Arundal, radio expert of The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd. Wednesday the construction of the apparatus was completed and a number of tests were carried on. Thursday night Mr. Arundal was busy with the final tests of the new radiophone apparatus. Tone tests were taken and modulation of both voice and music was checked up. Finally, when everything was in readiness the powerful machine was connected with the air.
MODULATION PERFECT
Within five minutes after the initial number was given out over the new broadcasting apparatus, enquiries were flooding the office asking if it was The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd., new broadcasting apparatus that was in operation. Reports were to the effect that the music and voice was perfectly modulated, in fact, many stated it was the best that they had ever heard in the vicinity. Mr. St. Clair, 35th Avenue West, phoned the radio station stating that the music was fine and it was far louder than anything else of the kind he had ever heard.
Mr. Hughes, 1325 Pendrell Street, phoned in his compliments to The Vancouver Sun Radiophone, Ltd., on the success of their new radiophone transmitter.
Mr. Turner, a commercial wireless operator, reported that at his receiving station, the music and voice was as clear as a bell. These are but three of the many reports that flooded The Sun office and radio station last evening.
LIFE MEN HEAR CONCERT
The Life Underwriters of B. C., a body of insurance men who were in conference here yesterday, were treated to a radiophone concert at their banquet held last night, by music from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd.
Watch out for The Sun Radio programme tonight at 7:30; it promises to be one of the best yet. You will find the new station working on a wave of 335 metres until further notice.
The Classic phonograph and Apex records, which are used exclusively at The Vancouver Sun Radiophone, Ltd., broadcasting station, are furnished by courtesy of The Artcraft Phonograph Company of Vancouver.

RADIO RANGE NOW MUCH INCREASED
The Sun's Broadcast Set Will Have Five Times the Former Power
HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!
This is The Sun Radio programme broadcasted by The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd.
Successful in every respect, was the general report received from those who were listening in on The Sun Radiophone programme broadcasted for the first time from the Vancouver Sun Radiophone, Ltd., new 100-watt radio radiophone transmitter last night. Reports from near and far stated that the modulation of the voice and music was perfect and that the intensity of the signals was very strong.
The installation of this new and more powerful transmitter to broadcast The Sun programme was made in an effort to give the public a much better service.
RANGE MUCH GREATER
The new station will have five times the range of the old one, which will make it much easier to receive the broadcast. As there is also five times the power in the new set, the apparatus used at the receiving end will not need to be as sensitive as that previously required.
Apparatus is now on the way which will entirely cut out any slight generator "hum," which one or two stations reported, and it is expected it will arrive within the next few days.
TWO DEPATCHES
Today there will be two broadcasts from The Vancouver Sun Radiophones, Ltd., broadcasting station, one at 12:30 p.m., and another at 7:30 p.m. The wave-length of the new station is 335 metres.
The Classic phonograph, a made-in-B. C. production, and Apex records, a Canadian-made product used for playing musical selections, are both supplied by courtesy of The Artcraft Phonograph Company of Vancouver.
