This chapter describes the radio broadcasters of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) during the period from 1923 to 1925. The broadcasters of this time were people of widely different talents but they all had the ability to project their personalities to an unseen and scattered audience. Successful broadcasters needed to know to reach such an audience and to triumph over the technical weaknesses of the medium. Some of the most popular broadcasters during this period include Dick Sheppard, Walford Davies, and Oliver Lodge.
