Early Electronic Oddities – The Audio Show

Here’s a really nice resource for exploring early electronic instruments from 1860 to 1970.

Take a guided audio tour through the earliest sound experiments, the Futurists, the first electronic instruments, vacuum tube technology, synthesizers, and the people involved along the way.

The show was originally broadcast on London’s Resonance 104.4fm. You can listen here but I recommend visiting the site for all the interesting information that supports the show.
