Not everything on Pioneertown Public Radio is 1oo% Country..
Adventures in Research was heard across America decades before The History Channel or the Discovery Channel were ever even conceived!
This educational radio program was sponsored by Westinghouse, a company which understood how important it was to make news about science and technology available to the American people.
The program was written by physicist Phillips Thomas who was on the staff at the Westinghouse Laboratories and technology. Thomas designed the show around inventors and their inventions and presented their stories as dramatic plays.
Broadcast from Westinghouse’s flagship Pittsburgh radio station, each episode of Adventures in Research tells the story of an important discovery or invention, and dramatizes the words and actions of those involved in the discovery. Early broadcasts featured science and inventions related to the participation of the US in World War II,
