Sentimental Sunday: Sandusky Cement Company Sponsored a Radio Program from Cleveland, Ohio in the 1920s

According to the website of the Cleveland Orchestra, in the 1920s, the Sandusky Cement Company, which had at one time been known as the Medusa Portland Cement Company, sponsored radio programs which featured the Cleveland Orchestra playing from the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland. The broadcasts were named the "Medusa Period," in honor of the Medusa cement products made by the Sandusky Cement Company. These radio programs brought quality music into the homes of people who may not have ever been able to travel to Cleveland to hear the orchestra in concert. Check out this interesting post at the website of the Cleveland Orchestra. Maybe your grandparents tuned in on their radio!
