WNOR's transmitting wavelength of 238 meters corresponds to 1260 kilohertz.

Radio  Wedding  Is  Latest  Stunt  Planned  Held
    So far as known to the New Orleans Radio Association the first "radio wedding" ever staged will take place here the week of December when that organization gives its second annual exhibition in Washington Artillery Hall.
    The entire wedding service, including the special music will be broadcast. The bride's "Yes" and likewise the bridegroom's; and the minister's "I pronounce you man and wife" will be sent in all directions.
    The association has arranged all the details--except providing the couple. It is now seeking the names of two young persons who are planning matrimony for the first week in December. An interesting proposition will be made to the first applicants.
    Music, the service of a minister or a priest and a score or more of beautiful gifts are promised to the pair which will serve as the hero and heroine of the radio wedding. Applications must be made to post office box 154.

Radio  Marriage  Is  Off  Because  of  Berry  Crop
    "Will not be able to get married at New Orleans Radio Show. My girl has changed her mind and won't marry me till after the strawberry crop has been gathered."
    This is the burden of a telegram which would be comic if it were not tragic which has just been received by the New Orleans Radio Association.
    The organization plans to hold a "Radio Wedding" in connection with the show the week of December 1. The ceremony is to be broadcast. It is said this will be the first "Radio Wedding" ever held.
    As an inducement the association will pay the minister's fee, furnish the marriage license; provide the music and bestow dozens of gifts on the bridal pair. In addition the couple will have the sensation of knowing that their "I do's" are being heard all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and other parts of the globe.

    Radio no longer can be counted an infant industry. Youthful it may be, but its lustiness was proved last night when hundreds of people flocked the wide aisles of the second annual New Orleans Radio Show in Washington Artillery Hall, St. Charles street, to inspect radio apparatus capable of sending the human voice thousands of miles across continents and oceans and of making audible words spoken in New Zealand or Timbuctu.
    At the booth of the New Orleans Radio Association, which is sponsor for the exhibit, C. A. Freitag, one of the ablest amateur operators in the city, sits in front of the homemade transmitting set with which twice in the last two weeks he was in two-way communication with New Zealand. Mr. Freitag is handling messages for visitors to the show, and last night the crowd which gathered about to watch him work was comparable in size only to the crowd which on the other side of the great hall was watching workers from the Lighthouse for the Blind making brooms and baskets.

Blind  Raising  Money.

    These blind workers are raising money to purchase a radio set for the Lighthouse, and at their booth rugs, baskets, brushes and small pieces of furniture, all made by blind workers, are on sale.
    Aside from the luxurious sets, built in expensive mahogany cabinets and designed to harmonize with various styles of interior decoration, which practically all the manufacturers and dealers represented have on display, the most interesting sets, judging from the numbers of persons who stopped to inspect them, were several pieces of field radio apparatus loaned to the exhibit by the Washington Artillery. A new French military sending and receiving set, an easily portable field phone set, and a heavy duty crystal receiving set were on display last night, and today several antique army and navy sets, curiosities already in spite of their youth, will be installed.
    The show was opened with a short address by C. E. Ammen, president of the radio association. The address was broadcast on a wave length of 238 meters from temporary station WNOR, from which will be sent out each night at 9 o'clock the feature events of the six evenings of the show. G. A. de Certin is in charge of broadcasting.
    Tomorrow night Miss Rose Michaelis, home economics expert, will talk on "The Making of Menus." Mayor McShane will deliver an address Thursday night. Miss Helen Keller, who was invited to speak at the show, was unable to attend, but sent a message of success in which she said she believes radio will do more for the blind than any other agency.

Radio  Wedding  Tomorrow.

    A radio wedding will be the feature tomorrow night. Five couples applied for the privilege of being married at the show. The honor was given to a World war veteran who was decorated for distinguished service and a young woman who has been prominent in relief work for veterans. The choir of Prytania Street Presbyterian church will furnish music for the wedding. Mayer Israel Company has provided the bridegroom with a full dress outfit, and the Hausman-Griswold Company will furnish the ring. The wedding cake will be the gift of D. H. Holmes Company.
    Some time today a larger corps of men will be gathered than those who yesterday attempted to move into the hall the world's largest loud speaker, which weighs 1200 pounds. This instrument was too heavy to be moved, but it is expected that with proper tackle and a larger force of men it can be installed with comparatively little trouble. It was one of the features at the recent National Radio Show in Chicago. Many other pieces of apparatus which manufacturers are displaying here aroused favorable comment at the same show.
New Orleans Times-Picayune, December 3, 1924, page 2:


    The second night of the New Orleans radio show in the Washington Artillery hall was featured by an address by Mayor McShane, a message by Rosa Michaelis, domestic scientist and a telegraphic dispatch of congratulations from Herbert Hoover, secretary of commerce.
    Even a larger crowd than on the opening night thronged the hall. A line formed before the doors were opened and filled the building. The displays were eagerly pounced upon by radio fans and thousands of questions were answered by the experts in charge of the booths.
    Miss Michaelis' lecture, "Menu Making," was broadcast. She is considered an authority on domestic science.
    The first radio wedding in the South will be tomorrow night. The preacher and the license have been obtained, as have the necessary bride and groom.
    It is said the couple are well-known in New Orleans, the bridegroom having distinguished himself in the World war.
    Preparations are being made by the officers of the show for the record breaking attendance of the week tomorrow night.

Sanford and Mercadel

    Tune in, all ye radio fans, on wave length 238 meters, Wednesday night at 9 o'clock, and you'll find yourself at the wedding of Mr. K. M. Sanford and Miss O. Mercadel, who are to be married right in front of the microphone at Station WNOR, in plain words, the Radio Show being held here at the Washington Artillery Hall.
    Out of several couples who applied to fill the requirements, this man and girl were chosen and they will be there, he in his soup and fish, she in her orange blossoms and bona fide wedding array, and they will be united in the bonds of marriage by the Rev. Father Badeaux.
    Miss Mercadel was formerly in employ of the U. S. Veterans' Bureau. Mr. Sanford is a World War vet. They met, they fell in love and now they are to be married.
    Robert Hayne Tarrant is in charge of the show. He is to have on a new cravat and will wear a white chrysanthemum in his buttonhole in honor of the occasion.
    The station is WNOR, the wave length 238 meters, the time 9 o'clock. The couple is really going to get married and as there'll be refreshments provided for the occasion, you listen closely you might hear cork pop.

Thousands  Hear  Radio  Wedding

    Absolutely the real thing was the Mercadel-Sanford radio wedding at which all those who tuned in Wednesday night, were present. The wedding march that you heard was the signal for a lacy bride and a formally dressed groom to walk up the to the microphone in front of which the ceremony was held, and the "I do" meant that Olga Mercadel and K. Morris Sanford were actually taking each other for better or for worse.
    This is the first wedding of its sort in the South, on record. Members of the bridal party included: John A. Mercadel, the bride's father; Alfred Guerin, the best man; Edward A. Mercadel, the groomsman; Miss Eugenie Vivien, the bridesmaid, Miss Eltera Mercadel, the maid of honor, and Mrs. Sydney J. D'Aquin, matron of honor.
    The Washington Artillery Hall where the radio show is being held was the scene for this most unusual proceeding. Thousands of people all over the country were the guests. The Rev. Thomas Gaffney of St. Ann's Church officiated, and the choir from the Prytania Presbyterian Church sang.

WNOR  Will  Broadcast  Radio  Pointers  Tonight
    Radio station WNOR, the official broadcasting station of the New Orlean Radio Show, will broadcast a number of very interesting talks Friday night on a wave length of 240 meters, beginning at 9 o'clock.
    Francis J. Reynolds of the Zenith Radio Corporation, will talk on "How Broadcasting Is Done"; H. H. Van Staagen, of the Institute of Radio Engineering, will discuss "Batteries," and Robert Lloyd Reed, of the Brunswick-Balke-Collender company, will give some interesting pointers on "Radio Receiving."
    Every one attending the show Saturday night will receive a free ticket giving them an opportunity to win a Zenith radio receiver, given by Woodward-Wight and Company.
    Station WNOR has been broadcasting nightly and created quite lot of favorable comment on its exceptional modulation. R. H. Wade, chief announcer and "charge d'affaires," has been complimented on his clear enunciation of speech and several listeners have suggested entering him in a popularity contest for radio announcer.
