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
