Nostalgia; 100 years of Radio
What’s in a name? An engineer from The Hague, Hanso Schotanus à Steringa Idzerda, familiarly known as Hanso Idzerda, or Idz for those wanting to take an even more drastic shortcut, broadcast the first Dutch radio programme on 6 november 1919. Uniquely to the Netherlands: there were already a number of various independent broadcasters, who shared broadcasts and had their own programmatic leanings. Socialists, Catholics, Protestants, Broad and Free Thinkers: they all had their own amusement programmes and often their own orchestra.
