    Radio waves travel at 186, 000 miles per second through air. In contrast, sound waves travel at only 1/5 of a mile per second. If a modulation is made of the radio wave that exactly reproduces the amplitude and frequency characteristics of the original sound wave, then sound can be transmitted rapidly over long distances. This leads to a very interesting phenomena. During a live broadcast in New York, the music will reach listeners in California a fraction of a second before it can be heard by t...

    In the short story by John Cheever called 'The Enormous Radio' it begins with Jim and Irene Westcotts appearing like the perfect American family.
