Radio - Rundfunk


"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

Einstein Im Radio

Albert Einstein, physicist, asked to explain Radio (but maybe it's misattributed?)


Bauer Schnattelbrock

"Rundfunk, na das kommt doch von Funk, das hat was mit Funken zu tun, ne? Und ein Radioprogramm ist eben immer dann gut, wenn's beim Hörer funkt! Is doch so, ne?"

Alfred Schnattelbrock, farmer near Übbinghausen, Eastern Westphalia, Germany, asked to explain Radio (that's certainly him, I heard it myself!)
