“From Radio to the mp3,” an exhibition of vintage devices dedicated to the anniversary of 60 years since the manufacturing of the first radio by the Radio Popular Factory was opened this Wednesday at Romania’s National History Museum (MNIR). Organized by the Museum in partnership with Pro Radio Antic, the Radio Collectors Association, the exhibition celebrates a major event in the history of the Romanian technical patrimony, the appearance of the radio on the Romanian market. The visitors are thus provided the opportunity to admire the first radios manufactured by Phillips, by the Radio Popular Factory, and many other exhibits produced by other companies, restored and kept in private collections. Visitors will be offered a chance to see remarkable pieces, such as a model of the famous Edison phonograph, gramophones manufactured by some of the most prestigious companies of those times, radios, pick-ups, tape recorders made in Romania and abroad. A special interest may be stirred by the device used to record the proclamation of King Mihai I, on August 23, 1944.
