On this day:

1910 – The first public radio broadcast takes place; a live performance of the operas Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci are sent out over the airwaves from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.
On January 13, 1910, the first public radio broadcast was an experimental transmission of a live Metropolitan Opera House performance of several famous opera singers.[1][2][3][4][5][6]
Performers

The first public radio broadcast consisted of performances of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci. Riccardo Martin performed as Turridu, Emmy Destinn as Santuzza, and Enrico Caruso as Canio.[6][7][8] The conductor was Egisto Tango.[9] This wireless radio transmission event of the Italian tenor Enrico Caruso of a concert from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City is regarded as the birth of public radio broadcasting.[1][2][5][10][11][12]

The New York Times reported on January 14, 1910,

Opera broadcast in part from the stage of the New York City Metropolitan Opera Company was heard on January 13, 1910, when Enrico Caruso and Emmy Destinn sang arias from Cavalleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci, which were “trapped and magnified by the dictograph directly from the stage and borne by wireless Hertzian waves over the turbulent waters of the sea to transcontinental and coastwise ships and over the mountainous peaks and undulating valleys of the country.” The microphone was connected by telephone wire to the laboratory of Dr. Lee De Forest.[13]

 

 

Born on this day:

Alfred Carl Fuller (January 13, 1885 – December 4, 1973) was a Canada-born American businessman. He was the original “Fuller Brush Man.”

Fuller was born on an Annapolis Valley farm in Welsford, Kings County, Nova Scotia. He moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1903 at the age of 18 to live with his sister. He went to work for the Somerville Brush and Mop Company, and became a successful salesman for them.[1] In 1906, with a $75.00 investment, he started the Fuller Brush Company in Hartford, Connecticut, selling brushes door to door. By 1919, the company had achieved sales of more than $1 million per year.

Fuller Brush went on to be recognized throughout North America, even inspiring two comedy films, The Fuller Brush Man (1948) and The Fuller Brush Girl (1950). In 1961 Fuller recorded the secrets to his success on Folkways Records on an album entitled, Careers in Selling: An Interview with Alfred C. Fuller.[citation needed] The company remained in the Fuller family’s hands until 1968, when it was acquired by Sara Lee Corporation.[2]

1. Be adventurous
He developed an early interest in music although his attempts to succeed as a pop star during much of the 1960s were frustrating.

2. Do something artistically valid
“Space Oddity” became his first top five entry on the UK Singles Chart after its release in July 1969.

3. Learn from bad experiences
After a period of experimentation, he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with his flamboyant and androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

4. Find your creative process
His impact at that time, as described by biographer David Buckley, “challenged the core belief of the rock music of its day”.

5. Do what you like doing
The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona proved to be one facet of a career marked by reinvention and musical innovation.

6. Try something new
In 1975, he achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the album Young Americans.

7. #Believe in your work
Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, He continued to experiment with musical styles, including blue-eyed soul, industrial, and jungle.

8. Your work is never finished
He also had a successful, but sporadic film career.

9. Follow your passion
Throughout his career, he sold an estimated 140 million records worldwide.

10. Make yourself happy
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

 

When asked if he had advice for musicians, Bowie replied: “Yes, never play at a gallery. [Laughs] I think. But you never learn that until much later on. But never work for other people at what you do. Always… always remember that the reason that you initially started working was that there was something inside yourself that you felt, that if you could manifest it in some way, you would understand more about yourself and how you coexist with the rest of society. And I — I think it’s terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people’s expectations; I think they produce — they generally produce their worst work when they do that. And if — the other thing I would say is that if you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in, go a little out of your depth, and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”
