On This Day

Wednesday, 13 October, 1920

Wireless telephony was first demonstrated at Parliament House, Melbourne to Federal MPs and others by Ernest Fisk of AWA where a broadcast was heard in Queen's Hall from a private home in Brighton. Prime Minister, Billy Hughes organised for Fisk to set up the equipment in Queen's Hall. An aerial was placed on the roof and the transmitting equipment set up at the home of AWA employee, Lionel Hooke. Distinguished guests were given a lecture and at 7pm the performance began with the first musical item on radio, Miss L. Walker (recent winner of a Melba scholarship) singing 'Advance Australia Fair', applicable as Dame Nellie had sung it herself in an experimental broadcast in England.
