Looks like we have a new candidate for Houdini's first radio broadcast. As you can see below, Houdini spoke on Westinghouse's station KDKA in Pittsburg at 7:15 PM on March 8, 1922. It's unlikely this was spiritualism related (like many of his other broadcasts) as this pre-dates his first public lectures on the subject. So what could this 15 minute "entertainment" have been? The mind boggles!

At the moment, this is the earliest Houdini radio broadcast that I'm aware of. But the list is ever growing. Oh how I wish someone, somewhere, somehow could find a recording of any Houdini radio talk!
