Radio Progress was a radio magazine published in Providence in the mid 1920's. Horace V. S. Taylor, was the editor and it was issued on the 1st and 15th of each month by the Oxford Press at 8 Temple Street, Providence. Rhode Island. John F. O'Hara, Publisher. Yearly subscription in U. S. A., $3.00. Outside U. S. A., $3.50. Single copies, 15 cents.

The magazine changes names on the January 1st, 1926 issue to New England Radio Progress. Adding New England to the name. Their reason for changeing was described here. They also lowered the price at the same time. A sign of problems? Who knows but I have not found any issues or listings of issues after February 15th, 1926

THE NEW NAME

Well, we've gone and done it. Just as we told you in the last issue, the price of this magazine has been cut from fifteen to five cents a copy.

All the comments we have re-ceived on this proposed change have been favorable. Our thou-sands of readers must have thought that each issue was well worth fifteen cents or else they wouldn't have paid it. And just as the action of Congress in re-ducing taxes is not ruffling the feelings of many people, so the giving of fifteen cents worth of radio for five cents isn't causing a big display of temper.

Changed Name, Too

But in addition to reducing our price, we have also changed the name to NEW ENGLAND RADIO PROGRESS. Maybe you wonder why this addition in our title has been made. There are two main reaŽsons for the change.

In the first place we feel that the people of New England will be proud of a magazine which caters to them and tries to preŽsent their own particular viewŽpoint. Just as we all get out and cheer for our own baseball team even though we have not a cent invested in the company, so we all like to realize that a publication is conducted with the idea of giving as good local service as possible.

New England is a rather com-pact group, and although the population contains a large proŽportion of foreign born, still they all are glad to call themselves Americans, and there is a sort of family feeling all over the six states. The grip of radio has grown so rapidly here that we know of only two men who are not interested in the art—one is stone deaf, and the other believes himself to be Napoleon. So New Englanders will undoubtedly feel that a magazine of their own is quite appropriate.

"Where Are You From?"

The other reason for our change of name lies outside of New Eng-land. Whenever you go to New York or Chicago or San Fran-cisco, you will meet plenty of people who are evidently strangŽers in the great city. Alter learnŽing their names the next question you ask is "Where are you from?" If they hail from another section of the country, does that prejudice you against them?

Time was when most people thought their own state was really the center of the country and out-siders were "furriners." But edu-cation and travel and particularly radio broadcasting has shown us all that the South is as interesting as the North, and that the West is just as smart as the East. So if we meet a man from the oppoŽsite corner of the United States, we feel that his acquaintance with another section of the country lends a further charm to his perŽsonality.



Publisher John F. O'Hara - Born Feb. 27, 1873, at Taunton. Mass. ; learned printing on the Taunton News and Providence Journal, beginning in 1890 ; initiated into Providence Union Nov. 28. 1896; worked a short time on Pawtuxet Valley Gleaner before coming to Providence ; worked as linotype operator on Bulletin and Journal imtil 1906 2 ; In August, 1907 Henry W. and John F. O'Hara organized The Oxford Linotype Composition Company. 1

Below are the issues I believe were published taking into accout the ones I have confirmed. There may have been more volumes than 1 & 2. Any information you may have would be appreciated.

Ideally I would like to find any issues of this magazine I can find. Next best thing would be a color pdf of the issue. After that a scan of the cover would be helpful. If you can help please let me know.
