Morning Start: Car radios were first implemented in 1930

Your morning start for Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Rain, rain, go away, come again another day. Oh, but it will. The forecast calls for rain all week.

Fun Fact of the day: Radios were first put in cars in 1930

The Galvin Corporation of Chicago, USA is credited with introducing the first commercial car radio, in 1930. Company founders Paul and Joe Galvin used the name “Motorola” for their in-car devices, which was a compound of “Motorised” and “Victrola” (a popular brand of phonograph).

The Motorola 5T71 sold for between $110 and $130, or $1,563-1,848 (£1,073-1,269) in today’s prices. Importantly, it could be installed in the most popular cars of the time.
