On the air at the push of a button
The radio push
Radio is the internet boom of its day in the 1920s and ’30s – for the first time, people are able to enjoy opera from the comfort of their home at the push of a button. Bosch goes a step further and manufactures the first car radio in serial production: the “Blaupunkt Autosuper.”
In 1938, more than 30 million radios were sold. Their buttons provided the first kind of basic memory. Listeners were able to set their favorite radio station to a specific button.
