Ahead of its time

The historic Cable House, home of Raven Radio, soon after it was built in the early 1900s.

Sitka’s historic Cable House, home of Raven Radio, is older than the medium it hosts…but just barely. The Cable House was built in 1907-8 as part of the Washington-Alaska Military Cable and Telegraph System. Meanwhile, the first-ever public radio broadcast took place in 1910 (bonus points if you can tell us what was in that first radio transmission!)
