The Father of Radio

marconi.jpg

Italian nobleman, Guglielmo Marconi, was the first to man to transmit a message via radio in 1895.  The device he used shaped a radio wave in such a way that another device could intercept it and decipher a message from the wave's shape.   Marconi used this invention to start the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company and soon every major ship on the ocean was equipped with a radio.
Even though Marconi didn't invent the radio we know today, playing music and talk shows, he laid the framework for what would become a household staple item throughout the world.
