January 10, 1929, Appleton Post-Crescent
In the same newspaper edition as the movie listings of yesterday, comes this story about the mayor appearing on Milwaukee radio to tout the benefits of Menasha life.  Radio was just getting started as a mass medium in the 1920's, so it must have been quite the innovation to even suggest such a broadcast.  I wonder how many folks in the Fox Valley even heard the broadcast and if it brought any new business or residents to the city..
