Radio Digest   
  Radio Programming, technology, station news and listener features
 Radio Digest began as a weekly tabloid format newspaper with program information and industry news. Starting in May,1926 it was converted to a standard magazine format, and issued twice a month and from Summer of 1928 to mid1929, it was a quarterly.  In Fall 1929 became a monthly, with less industry news and more for the radio listener and fan.. With the September, 1930 issue Radio Digest absorbed Radio Revue and Radio Broadcast magazines. The last known issue was dated March, 1933, A brief return as Fan Fare magazine occured in mid to late 1933

Missing Issues
..We are avidly searching for more of the 1922-1927 tabloid issues as they document industry developments better than any other publication of the era.
Another Publication
There was a magazine of the same name published in the late 1930's until its final issue in 1939.
And Yet Another Publication
Even as the "Real" Radio Digest launched, there was another publication issued in Chicago. We have one copy and this is it.
Note: the cover is insensative or distasteful by today's standards, but is left intact in the interest of historical accuracy.
