On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

May 12

On this day (1935) the Church of the Air broadcasted President Heber J. Grant's General Conference address to sixty-eight radio stations throughout the United States and Canada. At the time, it was the largest audience he had ever spoken to. Today, millions of people will watch or listen to General Conference by broadcast. - Mormon Cinema: Origins to 1952 by Randy Astle (Mormon Arts Center, 2018) pp. 411
