Inventor Edwin Armstrong, dancing on top of a radio tower before the opening of radio station WJZ NY.  Armstrong’s performance was part of his  courtship of Marion MacInnis. At the time, MacInnis was the secretary of RCA Executive (and future CEO) David Sarnoff.  Incidentally, Sarnoff was apparently infuriated.  He banned Armstrong from future access, despite his imminence as a both an inventor and the largest single shareholder of RCA stocks.

Upon winning her hand in marriage, Armstrong then gave his wife the world’s first “portable radio” as a wedding gift.


Future inventors when it comes to courtship, THAT is how it’s done.
