The radio communication system was created for users to communicate long distances with radio waves that were collected by transmitters. Nicola Tesla created this device in 1895, however when it was tested, it went up in flames! The first ever radio broadcast would take place just under 4 decades later. In today's day and age, radio is listened to by many users not just as a means of communication, but also for entertainment. Radio is still an important means of communication as 5 out of every 7 American's use some sort of radio in day to day life. In saying that, radio usage is different depending on the demographics.
