Brief History
The first public radio broadcasts were made in the early 1920s, and a radio set was an expensive and uncommon item. The Crosley Radio Corporation was founded in 1921 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and released its “Harko” crystal receiver in that same year. This model, the 4B, was released in 1924.
