Religious Broadcasting

This began in the British Isles 24 December 1922, when the Rev. J.A. Mayo gave a ten-minute talk just forty days after the inauguration of “the wireless.” In 1924 the first worship service was broadcast from St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London, and since 1928 there has been a daily service on radio without a break. The scope has widened to include talks, hymn-singing, panel discussions, and magazine- style material as well as services of various kinds.
