A look back at various radio stations

CFYC April 1922

Here's the first week of radio columns from the Vancouver World. Unless I go through the stax at the library, you're stuck with a partial column for one day.

The paper revealed the records it was playing on the air. Mercifully, none contain the "n" word, but there are racial numbers that wouldn't see any airplay today unless loaded with historical context. There are some Cal Stewart country discs; I presume they're recitations.

The station doesn't appear to have used call-letters yet.

This early in the radio industry, there is still talk of "receiving stations" at home instead of just a plain old radio.

We've tossed in a World cartoon from April 1. Cell phones would do the job today.

I believe all the OCR errors have been fixed.

RADIOITIS IS EPIDEMIC IN THE CITY
Vancouver is suffering from an acute attack of "radioitis." When The World radio broadcast was first started there were 110 licensed amateur radio operators in Vancouver and 200 in British Columbia. Now so great has been the demand for radio outfits that Divisional Superintendent W. Howard of the Radio Telegraph Service reports that he has completely run out of application for registration forms, and that it has been necessary to send to Ottawa for further supplies.
At the present time all amateurs must apply to the department of naval affairs at Ottawa before it is possible for them to operate, but so great has been the pressure on the department since "radioitis" made its appearance that Supt. Howard is endeavoring to get permission to formulate a scheme that will permit of licences being issued locally. This will enable amateurs to get into action earlier than if it was necessary to await a decision from Ottawa, and all amateurs who are as yet unlicensed are urged to get in touch with Divisional Superintendent W. Howard, Radio Telegraph Service, Victoria, as soon as possible.
Friday night saw another big night on The World's radio broadcast. Although a mishap to the receiving apparatus made necessary the cancellation of the radio concert in the First Presbyterian church, radio fans who were "listening in" from other stations received the full programme prepared for the concert. Mayor Tisdall, whose voice was received very clearly at New Westminster, Victoria and other points, spoke of the great advantages the radio would be to outlying districts in the dissemination of news, and then, at the request of Marshal Joffre, he expressed the thanks of the veteran soldier for the splendid reception given him by the school children of Vancouver. The massing of the school children in the various school yards and along the rout by which the marshal passed appealed very strongly to the hero of the Marne, and Mayor Tisdall stated that it was at the express wish of Marshal Joffre that he delivered the message of thanks to all the children.
Mr. J. S. Gordon also spoke briefly, and a number of specially selected pieces were played by leading musical aggregations. Announcement was also made that the radio concert would be given at a later date.

Tonight at 9 o'clock radio fans listening in to The World's radio broadcast will have an opportunity of hearing Mrs. R. G. Lamb, late soprano with the Metropolitan Opera Company, in a special rendition of "Bonnie Sweet Bessie, the Maid of Dundee".
Mrs. Lamb is singing in conjunction with a showing of the film "Bessie the Bonnie Briar Bush" at the Langley Theatre, Langley Prairie. A big receiving set installed there has been receiving The World's radio broadcast nightly, and Manager Timms made the arrangements for the sung [sic] to be sung during the filming of the famous Scotch picture.

With a receiving set installed in their optical parlors at 615 Hastings Street West, the Brown Optical Company is one of the first firms in the city to install a radio for the amusement of the people using the store.
"We are catching everything you send and your modulation is excellent," telephoned a member of the firm during Monday afternoon's broadcast. Several customers of the firm also "listened in" on the radio, and all the afternoon the stream of radio enthusiasts entering and leaving the store was very noticeable. Among them were a number of visiting Rotarians, many of whom are seeing radio in action for the first time during their visit here.

This is the report that has come in from a radio fan in Kitsilano, who has been "listening-in" on The World radio broadcast since Its first day. "It is getting better all the time,” he says, "and it is coming in far stronger and better than any of the others along the coast that I have been catching. We thoroughly enjoy all the concerts, and every night lately we have a group of the neighbors in. The radio is a great little friend maker.

Friday, April 7, 1922
The copy of the Vancouver World’s newspaper on line has a lovely crease in the paper, so one of two columns is not intelligible. We’ll have to summarise and reprint what we can decipher. It starts:
It was BC Electric Night on The World’s radio broadcast on Thursday night, and radio fans “listening-in” were given a treat by the B. C. E. R. quartette and also a little information on some of the members of the...company.
The story goes on to reveal the street railway’s Social Club “holds a number of whist and cribbage drives, football games” and participants hold an annual banquet at the club rooms on Carrall and Hastings (the old interurban terminus). This year, they were gifted a “big radio receiving set” from Sprott-Shaw. Even though that company had a rival station to the World’s, the World and the David Spencer Company arranged for a concert by the B.C.E.R. quartet.
“Now, gentlemen, we will give our ball team wail,” shouted concert leader J. Baldwin. It evoked “roars of laughter.” The rest of the column:

And they gave the yell, which went like this:
“One, two, three,
Who are we?
We are the boys of the B. C. E.”
There was a lot more to it, and It was taken up vociferously at the concert end of the radio. Following that Messrs. J. Baldwin, J. Stewart, A. Campbell and J. Price, the B. C. E. R. quartette, sang "The Bells of St. Mary's" and "Carry Me Back to Old Vlrginny," Mrs. Price sang "Men of Harlech," and R. E. Chamberlain also gave a number. The World received a wire from Port Angeles saying that the quartette was greatly enjoyed In the American city, while B. C. E. R. employees are rabid radio fans from now on.
In addition to the above numbers of the usual concert programme was given, and today the gramophone department of The David Spencer Store has prepared another concert with selections by the band of the Coldstream Guards, and songs by Caruso and McCormack.

It appears, other than listing records being played, the Vancouver World didn't have much to say about its station as things wore on.

The station played novelty pieces by Irving Kaufman and Billy Murray. W.C. Kelly was Grace Kelly's uncle who had a vaudeville act that wasn't, let's say, complimentary to non-whites. Cal Stewart did cornpone-accented recitations.

I like the reference to "Meridian Time." Time zones were reasonably new, I guess.

"Advices" from the Commons? That's what the stories say.

Pardon any OCR errors. I'm not responsible for the paper's way of spelling "Accordion."

WORLD RADIO HEARD IN NORTHERN ALBERTA
In northern Alberta, 32 miles from the Saskatchewan border, W. T. Wolfe, at radio station 4 A N, is nightly getting The World’s broadcast, and this radio fan reports that it is the clearest and best broadcast he has ever received.
"On March 27 at 10:15 p.m., 105 Meridian time, I picked up your radio telephone music," he writes. "I heard the announcement that you were sending from the roof of the Spencer building in Vancouver, and then ‘listened in’ on concert. The song, ‘Listen to the Mockingbird' and 'The Last Rose of Summer' were particularly good. My station is on the north side of the North Saskatchewan river, and 32 miles from the Saskatchewan border, but I can hear all your news bulletins and the concert as clear as if it was a phonograph playing in the room. My address is Elk Point, Vermilion, Alberta.
Night after night Operator Wolfe is getting Operator Jack Wilson. From other points also interested radio fans are reporting in. One of these is Mayor G. G. Henderson of Fernie, B. C., who as an old-time compositor on The World many many years ago, when all the type was set by hand and the office of the paper was on Cordova Street, is particularly interested in the new venture.
"I to congratulate The World," he writes. "I am always interested in the paper and I am glad to see it is keeping to the front."
The news of The World's radio broadcast has travelled even further afield, for this morning an inquiry was received from C. F. Seifert, of G. F. Seifert & Sons of Quebec City, who heard of The World’s radio and is anxious to make connections.
These are in addition to hundreds of radio fans from all over the Province of British Columbia and down along the west of the United States, and today and tomorrow The World is again sending out a special broadcast.

BELLINGHAM WILL LISTEN IN TONIGHT
While members of the Bellingham Board of Trade are having dinner in the Washington city, sixty odd miles away from Vancouver tonight, they will receive an invitation to visit Vancouver from J. N. Harvey, of the "B. C. Invitation Week" committee of the Vancouver Board of Trade and incidentally will "listen-in" on a specially arranged programme of music over The World's radio broadcast.
Ever since The World's radio broadcast was inaugurated, Bellingham radio fans have reported remarkable clearness and modulation in tone. They report The World's radio programme are received there even better than those from Seattle and other points where radio is now past the innovation stage, and as a result at the Bellingham Board of Trade dinner tonight a receiving set will be installed and the Vancouver Daily World broadcasting station will provide the programme.
Over the long-distance telephone today arrangements were completed and when Mr. Harvey, who is behind the "B. C. Invitation Week" campaign, heard of the matter he immediately agreed to extend an invitation to the Bellingham Board of Trade by radio. The invitation will be extended to every radio fan and every radio station catching The World's broadcast, and they will be asked to pass it along to their friends. The last word in the radio science is to be used to carry on the "B. C. Invitation Week" campaign, and tonight ships at sea, wireless stations along the coast and away inland, on both sides of the border, will receive the "Visit B. C." invitation of Mr. Harvey and the Vancouver Board of Trade.
On Saturday and Sunday nights the usual radio broadcasts were made from The World's station on top of the David Spencer Building and reports from all receiving stations showed that The World still leads with the clearest and best concert programme.

WORLD RADIO PICKED UP FAR OUT AT SEA
Over two hundred miles out of Vancouver, well off the Oregon coast, between Tatoosh and the Columbia, Wireless Operator W. L. Comyns, of the Union Oil tanker Oleum, picked up The World's radio broadcast.
"The music came in clear and strong," said Comyns in reporting to The World on Monday, “and it was followed by some press announcements. The musical numbers were perfect, and I was greatly pleased and surprised to get them so far out at sea. You have got a fine transmission set and a fine operator."
When the "Oleum" caught The World’s broadcast she was on her way to San Pedro, and Operator Comyns, who has had eight years’ experience in radio work, was particularly enthusiastic over the results he had in "listening in" to The World. On the "Oleum" he is using a special Federal construction outfit.
"In the south radio is catching on like wildfire." he said on Monday night after the boat had docked. "Every day and especially on Sundays, you can listen to concerts, lectures or anything you like. It is making life at sea a lot more pleasant, end soon radio concerts will be part of every ship's daily routine."
Operator Comyns also heard the invitation given by J. N. Harvey to the Bellingham Board of Trade.
"If any radio fan who heard Mr. Harvey doesn't make a trip to British Columbia this summer he hasn't any red blood in his veins," said Comyns. "He told of the fishing and shooting, the swimming and other sports, and also of the wonderful opportunities there are in this province. He painted a picture that should bring them up here in swarms, and it was full of good neighborly welcome, too. This 'hands across the border" movement is going to get a big boost from radio fans, as it will make many new friendships and bring radio fans from both sides of the line closer in touch with each other. There is nothing like a mutual hobby to make friends, and I have made many warm friends through the radio set."
Other points along the coast also reported receiving the invitation broadcasted by Mr. Harvey on behalf of the Board of Trade, and at Bellingham the Board of Trade dinner party reports that although unable to get the get the Seattle broadcasts they twice "listened in" on The World broadcast and are making arrangements to erect another aerial and hold another concert with The Vancouver World supplying the music through the David Spencer Company, Limited.

Another week of the Vancouver Daily World's station listings. Perhaps the novelty's worn off for the World staff, as about all you'll find are playlists.

Billy Jones was one of the Happiness Boys, appearing on radio in the mid-'20s (WEAF New York had a small network that eventually became NBC). His "Jinga Bula Jing Jing" is on-line as of this writing. Tiny Tim would have had fun with it.

I cringed seeing the title "Ching Chong," but the record is a 1917 instrumental with piano, banjo and sax.

Pardon any OCR errors.

PRINCE RUPERT GETS WORLD'S BROADCAST
From Prince Rupert comes the latest report of The World's radio broadcast being picked up. H. C. Earle of that city has written in to say that with a home-made receiving set he is regularly “getting The World.”
“All the concert numbers come through very clearly," he writes, "and although I have only a home-made set I am having no trouble at all. We get all the news bulletins and all the music we want, and in addition to getting The World broadcast I am getting a lot of messages from ships at sea.”
Operator Earle Is only one more of The World's radio fans who assert that the broadcast from this paper is the best on the Pacific coast.
"I get it ever so much clearer and stronger than any of the others," he says, "and I give a radio concert to my friends every night. We more than enjoy it and as far as I can gather, radio will make a big hit in Rupert and come in handy for people in the outlying districts from here."

With a temporary outfit installed at Horseshoe Bay, an amateur radio operator, Gerald Newmark, is nightly enjoying the radio broadcast sent out by The World. Station 5 C.D. is the official designation of the Newmark post, and so clearly are The World's programmes received that Operator Newmark wrote in to The World to let Operator Jack Wilson know just what he was getting.
Tonight another big programme, for which see page 10, has been prepared. Several of the numbers are those which have been requested by radio fans, and any fans who are "listening in" are reminded that they can have their favorite records placed on the daily broadcast by telephoning to the phonograph department of the David Spencer Co., Ltd.
At the request of many radio fans who are anxious to "listen in" on the sermon which is to be broadcasted from the First Presbyterian Church, Seattle, tomorrow evening. The World broadcast will not be given on Sunday evening on the last schedule until 9 o'clock.
The Sunday hours will therefore be from 2 to 3 p.m.; 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. and from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m., which will give churchgoers In Vancouver and the surrounding territory a chance to "listen In" on The World's broadcast after they have returned from church.

I didn't think about this until now, but these lists contradict the many broadcast history articles that state that Early Radio's music was mostly Live. And the musicians were mostly unpaid for their work.

Of course, Radio was just beginning at this point.

These music lists are obviously phonograph records. Nice to see some facts for a specific station, instead of generalizations in the articles I've been reading lately.

Jon, the impression I'm under is the World station had no studio at the outset. They had a "transmitting apparatus", a mike and a gramophone wired into the board. It seems like a low-budget operation to glomm onto the radio craze.
The Sun station, on the other hand, seems to have had an actual studio with a piano and live programming, at least during part of the day.

Here's the last week of April 1922 for the Vancouver World radio station.
News about the station is scarce. It couldn't be bothered to list the times it was on the air or frequency. All it did was play records. There's a lot of Paul Whiteman here. Request lines were open.
You'll notice one melody by Mair and Pattison. This would have been more appropriate for CJOR, had it existed.

MOVIE OPERATOR NOW WORKS TO MUSIC OF "WORLD" RADIOPHONE
J. H. Leslie, a motion picture operator employed at the Dominion Theatre found his job rather dull though he is able to watch silver screen all the time. Last night he was found waltzing around his machines as he made his adjustments, ducking and swaying from side to side. For some time it was thought that something was wrong with him, but then he stepped over to a shelf, adjusted something, took the receivers from his ears and turned to his work in a more sober manner.
With a single wire on the roof, a dollar's worth of apparatus. Leslie has music with his work and hears all the news of the world. He stated last night that he could always hear the "World Broadcast" easiest, and that he enjoyed the concerts very much.
Tonight's concert programme will be found on page 2.
