+ Frank Conrad, who worked for Westinghouse in Pittsburgh
+ The first commercial radio broadcast is believed to have taken place August 20, 1920 by station WWJ in Detroit
+ Radio sales grew at a staggering pace, from $60 million in 1922 to over $350 million in 1924
+ By the end of 1922, 563 other licensed stations will join KDKA.

II. 1924 Execution
+ The State of Nevada introduces death by gas chamber.
+ The hydrocyanic gas destroys the body's ability to process blood hemoglobin
+ Convicted murderer Gee John takes 6 minutes to die.
+ States using Gas Chamber: Arizona, California, Maryland, Missouri, Wyoming
+ In most cases the prisoner is allowed to choose the method of execution, depending on his or her date of sentencing. Eleven people have been executed by lethal gas in the United States since 1976.
 
III. 1926 Rocket
