Tune in to February’s LIVE Day: 100 Years of Radio from the comfort of home!
Here at MOTAT we’re celebrating the first 100 years of radio broadcasting in Aotearoa by looking and listening to some of our favourite MOTAT memories of radio 📻
Take a look:
Ever heard of a crystal powered radio? It might sound like science-fiction but they’re actually an old style of technology already gone out of date! What about a radio made by the same company that now makes a popular kids toy? Check out these and more in MOTAT’s huge collection of radios online here.
