Listening to the radio wasn’t always a leisure activity. Back in the 1920s, building an apparatus capable of receiving a strong broadcasting signal took some serious know-how and no small amount of gumption—and DIY radio hobbyists had to put real effort into maintaining the machines once they’d managed to cobble them together. In late 1922, Popular Science offered a complex and caveat-filled guide to making, using, and mastering the upkeep of a home radio. The cover, painted by Clarence Rowe, shows a man enthusiastically enjoying the fruits of his labor—using his radio and headphones to listen to an American football match.
