NATIONAL RADIO DAY

Each year on August 20, National Radio Day celebrates the great invention of the radio.

In the late 19th century, it became clear that wireless communication was possible.

There were several inventors that had a part in the invention of the radio in the late 1800’s and not just one person can be credited with it’s beginning. To make the radio a reality, it required a number of different inventions and discoveries including both transmission and reception methods as well as technology.

It was in the 1920’s when the first broadcast stations began airing programs.  These first programs were those of news and world events.

  •  Radio ownership grew from two out of five homes in 1931 to four out of five homes in 1938.
  • According to FCC statistics, at the end of 2012, there were more than 15,000 licensed broadcast radio stations in the U.S.

To celebrate National Radio Day, listen to your favorite radio station and give a special recognition to your local radio personalities.

Happy National Radio Day!

NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY

In the midst of a hot summer day, nothing is more refreshing than a tall glass of ice cold lemonade!  Annually celebrated during the summer month of August on the 20th, it is National  Lemonade Day.

Research shows that the earliest mention of lemonade stems from 10th century Egypt.  Trade in lemon juice was quite common and the people liked to drink the lemon juice with sugar added.

Today, lemonade is made from fresh fruit, reconstituted from frozen juice, dry powder or liquid concentrate and it is colored in a variety of shades.  Usually served in a tall glass with ice, it is also sometimes served frozen into a slush or Popsicle-type dessert.  There are artificially sweetened and artificially flavored lemonade versions that have become popular as well.  Another popular version is the artificially flavored alcoholic lemonade drinks.

Enjoy a nice TALL glass of ice cold lemonade today!
