On the 30th day of November 1924, Radio Educación commenced broadcasting, at the initiative of the then Secretariat of Public Education, José Vasconcelos The purpose was to harness the potential of radio for the benefit of educational and cultural tasks in Mexico. The new radio station began broadcasting with the inauguration of President Plutarco Elías Calles, under the acronym CYE Culture and Education.

The program consisted of music including Pineapple Rag, music from Francis Lai, and Simon & Garfunkel. The reception however was overall poor. Radio Educacion’s signal was fair and there was no interference, but the static crashes were extremely loud and made listening very difficult.


Below is a short video of my reception of Radio Educacion.
